CHIVES - DEHYDRATOR Spread chives in a thin layer over trays and dry at no more than 110 degrees Fahrenheit until brittle, 4 to 6 hours. CHIVES-OUTDOORS Spread chives in a thin layer over trays. Dry in a well ventilated area out of sunlight 8 to 10 hours. CHIVES-OVEN OR HOMEMADE DRYER Spread chives in a thin layer over trays. Dry at not more than 110 degrees Fahrenheit for 4 to 6 hours until crisp, keeping door ajar. instructions To dry chives, cut tops from the plant before flowers form. Chop in 1/4-inch pieces. Do not wash, but discard any dirty pieces. CHIVES-USES Dried chives add a mild onion flavor to salads and casseroles. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon dried chives over an omelet before cooking or into 2 eggs to be scrambled. Add 1 tablespoon with each cup of milk in a white sauce to add flavor and color. Dried chives are not as flavorful as fresh chives, since chives lose much of their flavor when dried. A pot of chives is easy to keep inside and is productive all winter.
