Herb Guide: Choosing, Storing and Cooking
Maximize your perishable produce with our guide to choosing, storing and using all kinds of fresh herbs.
Delicate chives, smaller cousins of onions, are a great way to add a more subtle oniony flavor to recipes. Look for leaves with a uniform, glossy green color and no shriveling or brown spots. You can store chives in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for about a week.
Tip: For minced chives, simply hold a bunch on a cutting board and use a rocking motion with a sharp knife to chop them finely; for bigger pieces, simply snip chives with scissors. A great way to use chives and other fresh herbs is to infuse their fresh flavor into olive oil.
