Don’t we wish those were still the prices!
I need a haircut so bad but can’t decide what I want to do. Something short-“ish” but still with a tad bit of length…because right now I’m starting to look like “Shaggy” from Scooby Do
It hasn’t been trimmed since April and, this is pretty close to Mr. Fix-It’s expression when I get up in the morning.
Something else needing a haircut was my chives. They were tall enough to layover..past time for a trim.
I think I’ve gotten addicted to using chives, nothing is safe….eggs, soups, stews…you name it nothing gets past the chives. It gives so much flavor for so little gardening effort, pop them in a pot and leave them alone, I pretty much ignore them till it’s time for a trim. In the grocery the other day I saw bundles of fresh chives being sold for over $3.00. The bundles were only about 1/2 the size of this cutting.
I’d made a rather foolish attempt to dehydrate them in the Excalibur…and found them blown all over inside.
It’s not easy picking up and shaking a Excalibur as you would a toaster to clean them out! If I still had the smaller round dehydrator It would be fine as the air flows up/down on the cuttings holding them in place. I may try using the ambient heat from the oven next time I make bread & see what happens. Although they take up very little space the less I have in the freezer the better. Besides, I’ve saved a bunch of brown glass vitamin bottles & have them all clean ready to store my herbs.
How do you preserve/store your chives?
Do they loose flavor dehydrated?
