St.Louis Herb Society
  Chive talkin’ ! The featured herb this month is one of the first to pop up in the Spring. A hardy, very useful perennial, that will not only return year after year, the clumps will increase in size! And yield several harvests per season. A subtle yet perceptible flavor, that adds an element of color as a garnish. Whether you opt for Garlic Chives or the standard variety, both produce a lovely bloom on tall graceful spikes. There are many Asian style recipes for this edible flower.  
  The featured recipe this month helps finish off your remaining supply of winter squash. Though the recipe calls for butternut, acorn, or most any hard winter squash will work. And the recipe is garnished with pumpkin seeds, but why not reserve and toast the seeds from the squash you are using! Chives will also give a beautiful tint to vinegar, and make a pretty and flavorful addition to biscuits.
