Tips

Expert Tips

  • Chives, like their onion cousins, are a member of the lily family. They're rewarding for the busy gardener to grow because they thrive without care. Their oniony flavor becomes milder when cooked, and they add nice color to dishes.
  • Serve these muffins, with their intriguing lemon and herb flavor, with grilled or broiled salmon and steamed asparagus.
