Chopping Chives

Martha Stewart Living, June 2008

For faster, crisper cuts of chives (or scallions), use a rubber band to hold the herbs together. As you chop along the stems, simply move the rubber band back. The elastic will keep the chives taut and steady, making them easier to slice through and less likely to get squashed in the process.

    Since I grow my own chives, I have another method. I use the same scissors that I harvest the bunch with. I cut the chives over whatever dish I will be adding them to with the scissors. I cut pizza with my kitchen scissors too.

    I do the same thing using kitchen shears and they come out beautifully!
