Garlic Chives can be used to add a mild onion-garlic flavor to dishes where the flavor of regular garlic might be too overwhelming. Harvest the leaves by cutting them off at the base of the plant. Chop and add fresh leaves to cream cheese, butter, salads or stir-fries. Add the leaves to cooked dishes at a later stage, as lengthy cooking destroys the flavor. The flowers are sweetly scented and make a beautiful addition to fresh flower bouquets.
