Allium schoenoprasum Chives are diminutive tubular versions of scallion leaves. The only real concern when used in dishes is to add the snipped chives close to the end of cooking to preserve their flavor and crispness. Both chives and their edible lavender flowers are a tasty and colorful addition to salads. Chives are a member of the lily family. An ounce of chives is a lot of chives.
The price is per ounce.
