Very much so. There are many things you can do with chive blossoms, the easiest of which is to pull the flower heads apart and use them as a garnish or to add a delicate onion flavor into savory dishes like soups, cream sauces, potatoes, and egg dishes. Lately we've been taking the purple flowers off the head of the chive and mixing them into goat cheese for a pretty, simple spread. So next time you're thinking of dumping them into your compost, think again.
