Fin, how long do they last in the salt?Definitely pack them in canning jars with salt--about an inch of chopped chives, sprinkle liberally with salt, repeat. I keep one in the fridge and the rest in the freezer but plenty of people keep them on the shelves with no problem.
Thanks Judylou! I think I'll freeze them. I already did a batch of Italian Parsley in ice cubes, it's so practical, and pretty!Packing them in salt results in fermented chives which has a very different flavor and texture and is only safe if kept in the refrigerator.
