It’s Time for the Purple Chive Flowers

I love this time of year….when the garden starts to bloom.  And right now, it’s the purple chive flowers.

I use them in salads, toppings for deviled eggs, in bouquets, and in little bouquets to garnish cheese platters. How about you? How do you use these little garden treasures?

Since we are very careful about keeping our plants organic, we have no qualms about eating them.  They add a peppery kick to salads and eggs.
