In Overheard, we're sharing all of the best tidbits we couldn't help picking up on—from smart tips on the Hotline to funny quotes heard around the water cooler and more—so we can all be in the know.
A perk of fresh chives is the bonus of cheery, purple flowers that not only look good but are tasty, too. Over on the Hotline, jessicamclement shared that she's growing chives; now she wonders what to do with the blossoms. You all came up with 5 great ideas:
1) Make chive blossom butter, as lastnightsdinner likes to do.2) Put little bunches of the blossoms in bud vases, says SMSF.3) Use them as a garnish on simple pasta dishes. PieceOfLayerCake suggests cacio e pepe.4) Try a springtime omelet with chopped chives and chive blossoms, says luvcookbooks.5) Lightly grill them and serve them alongside a steak, as aargersi does.
