Preserving Chive Blossoms

I had a nie harvest of chives flowers this week. Aren’t they pretty in this little basket? They could be a nice center piece for a party table, seriously. 😉

I hate to waste them, so what should I do? We bought a big jar of pickles last week and have 6 pickles left in there. I though of using the jar and the vinegar in it, but decided not to after I read the label. It contains colors and preservatives. I opted for all-natural.

After getting some inspiration from this website, Adventurer Jr. III helped me snip the flowers off the stems, put them in a clean canister jar, poured apple cider vinegar over them. Now they are on my windowsill under the sun. They should be ready after 2 weeks. I’ll use them when cooking for seafood, pasta sauce, meats, etc.
