How to Purchase, Store and Use Fresh Chives
Chives have a mild onion flavor that complements a variety of dishes. Look for chives with a vivid green color and no signs of wilting. Wrapped in damp paper towels and stored in a plastic bag in the refrigerator, chives should keep for up to 1 week. Keep chives long and wispy or snip to desired length with clean kitchen scissors.
