They are usually harvested raw and used to garnish many various meals including soups, salads, and side dishes served with meals to name a few of their uses. They also work well baked into many egg-based dishes such as scrambled eggs, quiche, or omelets.  

Chives can also be treated with lavender oil and vinegar and stored for a few weeks till they are ready to present as nice gifts as well.

Common Chives will produce shoots that grow to a mature height of roughly 18 inches tall. Popularly used to flavor potatoes and salads, Chives are not only tasty, but are also attractive as well. Each plant displays fluffy, purple colored flowers atop slender stems / shoots. The shoots, once cut will add a slight onion flavor to any dish that they are added to. The flowers also add a mild onion flavor and can be used as a garnish.

Categorized as a perennial herb plant, common chives will establish a deep root system, later wilting on the surface with the first killing frost. The plants will then return the following year after all danger of frost passes. The plants can be harvested soon after they reach a few inches tall. Chives not only look great, smell great and taste great, but they also drive away pesky insects as well. Grow Common chives near any vegetables or herbs that are being tormented by unwanted insects to instantly drive them away.
