Garlic Chives

Garlic chives are also hardy perennials.

The foliage is flat rather than hollow, and grows to about twelve inches high.

The flower stalks grow up to 30 inches high, topped with greenish-white flower heads which are quite showy.

The mild garlic flavor of the foliage is useful in many foods, particularly oriental dishes.

As with chives, garlic chives are harvested by shearing the leaves at ground level.

Older leaves become coarse, so shear the plants occasionally even if you have no immediate use for the herb.

This will encourage the plants to produce the desirable tender shoots.

Herbal Lemonade Boil 2 cups of water and pour over a 2" sprig of rosemary OR 1 heaping tablespoon of lavender flowers. Steep for 5-8 minutes and then remove herbs. Add 1/3 c. sugar or honey and stir to dissolve. Pour into a 1 quart jar and add 1/4 c. lemon juice. Fill the rest of the way with cold water. Chill and taste, adjusting lemon and sweetness to taste. Serve over ice, with a small fresh sprig of rosemary or lavender if you like.
