Fresh chive flowers in Louisville – LIMITED TIME ONLY

I’m thrilled to offer fresh chive flowers, while they last. Chives are a popular herb, especially as a finishing garnish, but the pretty purple flowers are also edible. Use them whole in salads or other dishes to add a pop of color and a bit of delicate onion flavor. Or steep them in vinegar to create an infused, slightly sweet oniony vinegar, perfect for flavoring salads or vegetables.

Your chive flowers will include a few inches of stem, so they can be stored for a couple of days in a glass of water. For maximum flavor, however, you should use them quickly.

Fresh chive flowers will only be around for a short time and there are limited quantities. Sold in “bunches” of four flowers. It takes about 3 bunches to infuse a quart of vinegar.

Fresh chive flowers in Louisville are available in early summer.

When you arrive to pick up your herbs, just look for your name tag and take your bundle. Please do not take the glass jar. Your herbs will be fine for at least 30 minutes without water, but after that time, they should be stored in a vase, glass or jar with water. They will keep for several days, or longer, if stored in water. 

What to Do With Fresh Herbs 

Many people who purchase fresh herbs will use them for specific recipes or other cooking applications. In most cases, fresh herbs are added towards the end of the cooking process or sprinkled over the finished dish. Herbs can be steeped in warm (not HOT) water to make herbal teas or marinated in vinegar to flavor it. Here’s a few more ideas for using your herbs.

Fresh chive flowers will keep for a day or so if stored in water. Use quickly for best flavor.

While herbs are generally safe to consume, there are always exceptions or contraindications. You should always seek medical advice before using herbs medicinally. We are not medical professionals, any information on herbs we offer is just that, information.
