Edible chive flowers

Did you know that you can eat the flowers from your chive plants? I know, I know ... you're probably thinking: eat flowers?

They are DELICIOUS! You can just walk up to the plant, pick a few flowers and pop 'em in your mouth, or you can harvest them for cooking. I like them fried in butter with mushrooms and onions.

I'm making Bun Bo Hue Vietnamese soup today, and I tossed a handful of chive flowers in with the lemongrass. And the beauty of it is that you also can harvest the chives to use as you normally would. And the herb plant just keeps coming back year after year after year.

So let me ask you this: Why wouldn't you have chives in your garden? :)
