Sometimes I go to Sam’s and get the big pack of garlic. This time I didn’t use it all, so these two heads sprouted.

Now they are growing in the garden. It won’t be long before I can just pull some when I need garlic.

These chives jumped to garden path two years ago to grow in the mulch. They are ready to be used on baked potatoes, or in recipes.

Here is a recipe that uses both garlic and chives, and is a wonderful dip for raw vegetables.

Dip

1 cup homemade olive-oil mayo

Blend: 1 whole egg

2 tsp wine vinegar

1 tsp dry mustard

Add in drops: 1 cup oil (this can be done in a blender or food processor)

Add: 1 cup sour cream

3 garlic cloves, finely chopped

2 T chopped capers

1/2 cup chopped parsley

1 t Tabasco

1/2 cup chopped chives

I tried using my hand blender for the mayo. It made nice, thick mayonnaise.
