Chives are also good for making chive vinegar. For the vinegar you need: about 20 chive blossoms, white wine (or champagne) vinegar and a bottle to keep it in.
Place the chive blossoms in the bottle (the blossoms do not need to be packed tightly).
Cover and let it steep in a dark cupboard for about a week. The blossoms will tint the vinegar pink and leave you with a STRONG chive vinegar.
Strain out the blossoms, add a little of the vinegar to olive oil and you will have a tasty dressing for your salads. (This could also be another PTOE activity for sulphur). You can use many different kinds of herbs to make herbal vinegars, a rosemary vinegar would be yummy or a basil and chive vinegar. Try different herbs and steep them together to create interesting blends, don't be afraid to experiment. Enjoy!
