Benefits of Chives
Chives are rich in vitamin C which is a water soluble antioxidant. This vitamin improves the elasticity of blood vessels and skin, prevents bruising and facilitates quick wound healing. Chives are a tender herb (along with cilantro, mint and basil) that have gentle stems and are best to add either raw or near the end of cooking in order to maintain their delicate flavor and texture. Chives are easy to grow and can even be grown in small pots on a sunny windowsill.
