Chives are one of the first things that show up in my herb barrels each spring and they just make you smile. They are bright, and straight and reaching for the sun as quick as they can in early spring. They add such a delicious flavor to eggs, scones, cornbread, or as a fresh garnish to tacos or any soup or stew.
I use my kitchen scissors to snip off a small bundle. Give them a quick rinse and they are ready to be finely diced.
Use a great tasting cheddar cheese and a generous amount of chives in these scones and you will be able to serve a bit of spring with your breakfast, lunch or dinner. These scones are best served warm and eaten fresh. Yum!
