Chives Powder

SKU FIE0032

Applications & Usage

Uses With their mild onion flavor, chives complement potatoes, vegetables, fish, veal, creamy sauces, cheese and eggs. Add chives at the last moment when cooking hot soups, sauces and sautés, since extended cooking tends to reduce their flavor. The medicinal benefits of chives are similar to those of garlic, but weaker.
