common cooking herbs:


chive This grassy-looking herb, a member of the onion family, has a mild onion-y flavor. Add chive close to the end of cooking time, since its flavor is fairly delicate. The hollow-stemmed variety look great in a garden, as they produce a pretty purple flower (which is actually edible), but fresh chives are readily available at supermarkets year-round. Chinese chive, also known as garlic chive, is flat-stemmed, garlicky in flavor, and its flower buds make for a very tasty stir-fry ingredient.

classic uses: savory garnish, creamy dips
