Wild Chives Picking Day

Simple and quick post on a rainy cloudy day… Drizzling here today in the Hudson Valley, so it’s a great day to go out there get a little wet and dirty too, the ground is soft so the first Allium Schoenoprasum of the season, wild chives that is…  are super easy to pull out of the ground.

The whole thing is edible even their purple flowers, perfect for salads, (didn’t find any with flowers though… maybe next time) Very mild in flavor, delicious in soups…

So go out there, get wet, get a little dirt under your nails, explore… Now, I cannot wait for the fiddle-head fern to come out… MMM delicious!
