Garlic chive is the correct name of the plant, which has never been missing in the gardens of our grandmothers and great-grandmothers.
Chive is a bulbous, lush green plant. Its hollow leaves contain large amount of vitamin C and essential oils that give it a distinctive, spicy aroma. From us, from Mochov, you can buy cut or potted chives. If you cut the leaf carefully, without damaging the bulbs, your plant will produce leaves again and if you don’t forget to water it, it will grow again and again for the rest of the year.
When preparing meals, add chives at the end of preparation or when the meal is ready. Cooking deprives it not only for its colour, but also for precious minerals and vitamins.
Even when it is dried, it retains its beautiful colour. Unfortunately, drying makes it to lose its flavour and aroma, so it is then used for garnishing only. If you want to store it, freeze it instead of drying it.

Soup from Lettuce with Chive
Peel the potatoes and onions, rinse the leek. Slice the onions and leeks. Dice the potatoes. Prepare about 2 litres of broth from the bouillon cube and boiling water.
Wash lettuce thoroughly and chop it up to small pieces. Put it into boiling water and cook for 1 minute, then drain immediately. Melt half the butter and use it to stew boiled and strained salad. Stew for 10 minutes under the lid on low heat. Melt the remaining butter and use it to fry leek and onion until the onion turns glassy. Pour broth from bouillon cubes; add diced potatoes and the lettuce stewed on butter. Add more water as needed. Boil until the potatoes become tender, for about 15 minutes. When the soup is boiled, remove it from the heat and stir in some sour cream. It can be flavoured with salt and pepper.
