What are chives? About the ingredient chives. Including 686 recipes with chives, nutrition data, and where to find it.


Chives  are the smallest species of the onion family.

Chives are one of the "fines herbes" of French cuisine, which also include tarragon, chervil and/or parsley.

Chives can be found fresh at most markets year-round, making it a readily available herb; it can also be dry-frozen without much impairment to its taste, giving home growers the opportunity to store large quantities harvested from their own garden.

Chives starting to look old can be cut back to about 2 to 5 cm to encourage new growth.

When harvesting, the needed number of stalks should be cut to the base. During the growing season, the plant will continually regrow leaves, allowing for a continuous harvest.
