My Home Gardening-Cooking and Preparing Meals With Chives From The Garden
Cooking and Preparing Meals With Home Grown Chives
Cooking and preparing meals with chives from home gardening can add a light onion flavor to your cooking. I have love chives ever since childhood. My mother had several bunches of them growing in our yard. It seemed to be a major goal for our cat to make and escape outside and pounce on them and begin chewing. She for some reason I have never figured out loved them too. My reason are different, I enjoyed the flavor when my mom used to put them on a bowl of cottage cheese. She used them in many of the things she cooked.
The memory of chives growing in our home garden reminds me of good old-fashioned home cooking. They are and easy plant to grow and come back every year. I simply snip off the tops of the plant chop it up and you can add flavor and interest to any dish. Chives on a baked potato are delicious, I simply use butter or sour cream and sprinkle some snipped up chives. This is the way my mom used to make our potatoes when she served dinner. My dad had a huge garden and he would grow all of our vegetable for the year. My mom would can or freeze them so we had home grown vegetable all year long.
Chives are easy to grow in your home garden. All you need is planter with good drainage, some quality soil, and seeds. Follow the directions on the back of the packet. Your seeds will grow into tall chives. Keep them near a window make sure they are watered regularly and in a few weeks you will have your own private garden. Simply snip the tops of the plants for cooking and they will continue to grow. Mine have been growing for over 3 years now and we put them in all of our recipes. My husband uses them to make delicious dips and mixes the with cream cheese for bagels.
