  • Flowering chives – Wonderfully crunchy, these differ from standard chives, and have a bud on one end. Don’t overlook these as they add texture, flavor and vibrant color!
  • Maple syrup – Maple syrup imparts a balance of sour and caramel undertones. It enhances the dish with a necessary layer of sweetness, and coats ingredients so well!
