Fresh chives are great. Baked potatoes? Oh yeah, gotta do fresh chives. But for things like home fries or fried chicken you have to go with dried to get the right flavor.
The daintiest member of the allium (onion) family, the chive is a wispy herb that offers the flavor of scallions and garlic all rolled into one. Dried chive flakes make for an intriguing building block to other dishes. Add them to any number of spice blends to get a greener, mellower onion flavor as opposed to using onions flakes that can be papery and brusque.
|Recommended Applications||Used in egg or potato dishes, cheese, stir-fry dishes, salads, cream and tomato sauces and soups when a light onion flavor is desired. Try Chive Flakes in your favorite omelet or on a baked potato for a fresh herbal flavor.|
