What’s your favourite summer herb?

For me, it simply has to be chives.

We can also discuss spices, if anyone is that way inclined.

What counts as a summer herb? Not being snarky I just figured they all were only available in summer really. I can kill any plant though so who knows.

Different herbs for different needs!!!

I dunno really. I suppose any herb that you like to have with summer dishes.
I’m not green fingered either, tbh. My kitchen windowsill is like a bloody plant graveyard

Fair point well made.

Let’s talk about how we use different herbs.

What do you do with Chives, Kermy?

I like to chop them up small and mix them into potato salads and coleslaw, sour cream for potato skin dipping. They make a nice garnish for omelette, too.

Sometimes I use scissors to chop chives, sometimes I use a knife.

chives are great on eggs but I never use them for anything else (made about 3 potato salads in my life)

Yo Kerm! I’ve been really into scrambled eggs with chives from the garden sprinkled on lately

I use them for those things too! Also, amazing on scrambled eggs.

Controversial but I prefer dried chives to fresh!

Basil I guess?

I actually don’t have summer or winter dishes and it’s a form of contention with my wife as it adds to the whole thing around meals which is basically that I will eat anything that is veggie (I mean not just bland food but that’s just a given right) and just like ‘food’, while my wife actually gives a shit and, say, doesn’t really want soup or cassoulet in certain seasons. Hence this means I have to sort of wildly suggest things we can eat and she has to think about it and it annoys her.
