Chives are of the onion family, but have a milder, sweeter flavor than onions.  They add a nice color to many dishes and are wonderful for people who don't really enjoy the taste of onions.  They are believed to have some medicinal qualities as well.


Use in eggs, potatoes, soups, salads or on fish.  Chives rehydrate quickly in just a small amount of water.
