I grow chives in my herb garden, they are really easy to grow and are beautiful too! To dry them harvest early in the morning, remove any brown leaves and chop into small pieces. I hold them all together in one clump (you could even put a rubber band around the end to hold them together) and chop. I let them dry on the kitchen counter for 3-5 days then store in an airtight container. I told you it was easy! Chives are great in scrambled eggs and all kinds of dishes, they have a mild oniony flavor.
