Chives have self-seeded everywhere in the garden, every crack in the path has chives sprouting from within. I can't quite bring myself to pull them out, so I find myself doing a crazy dance-walk trying to make my way between the garden beds.
I let the larger smalls loose with a bucket, a pair of scissors each & simple instructions on how to harvest the flowers to trial cooking them on the BBQ. We have used these flower buds with much success in stir fries and lightly fried with scrambled eggs.
They may not look like much (like much of my cooking unfortunately) but with a splash of tamari before you take them of the BBQ they are delicious, especially with some fresh local calamari, sunshine & Tim home early from work.
