Fresh Chives in Your Local Greenmarkets

Fresh Chives in Your Local Greenmarkets

 

The greenmarkets are filling up with a new growing season filled with beautiful, healthy, and tasty produce! We’ve already had some lovely tomatoes. And, of course, the asparagus has been spectacular (especially when grilled or broiled). Now the chives are out. You can use them as a centerpiece, with their pretty purple flowers, and also on a luscious baked potato with sour cream. Pick up an edible bouquet at your nearest farmers market this weekend!
