Even though I don’t hate winter, it’s probably my least favorite season. Besides getting to enjoy warmer weather and longer days, I really look forward to being able to get fresh, seasonal produce througout the spring, summer and winter. I would argue that seasonal produce just keeps getting better as the year goes on (and some of my favorites, like apples and winter squash, aren’t at their peak until late summer/early fall). That being said, there are still some pretty awesome options that are at their prime during the spring. Among my favorite seasonal spring ingredients are chives. If you haven’t ever tried fresh chives, you are missing out! Unlike the dried version that you’ll find in a spice jar at the grocery store, fresh chives have a bright, strong, onion-like flavor. I got these beautiful chives from Isabelle Farm, and they’re some of the best I’ve ever had!
Sprinkling fresh, chopped chives on top of your eggs, potatoes, fish and other dishes is a delicious way to add some seasoning.
