    Chopping chives easily

    I use scissors, but am going to try this anyway.
    From Michael Ruhlman.

    Wrap a bundle of chives in a damp folded towel and then cut. It solves two problems: you don’t crush them as you can when they rest flat on the board; and you don’t wind up with long strings of half cut chive where they knife didn’t go all the way through.

    Love this tip! I grow lots of chives and use a lot. I'm always harvesting at an early date so they are rather thin. Looking forward to trying this. Thanks Z.

    Cooking just for me I never need that many at a time ~ I'll continue to use scissors!

    Nice tip, but never need that many. Even for catering. I use shears. But, a good tip.
