Any recipe where you would like a mild onion flavor with more nutrients than onions have. Chives are high inĀ potassium, iron and calcium, vitamins A and C, folate, niacin, riboflavin and thiamin. As a rich source of vitamin C, folk remedies recommenc chives to helpĀ alleviate a stuffy nose and colds. They have much more nutritional value than onions, so anywhere you can substitute them is a health benefit.
If you don’t use the whole bunch right away, just leave them on your counter to dry and they will keep for a long time. Chives have the most flavor when fresh, dried they are okay, but never freeze chives – they just lose all of their flavor when frozen.
