This is a quick post because it is very simple but worth showing. I used fresh chives from our garden and mixed them into softened butter and sent the butter back to the fridge to be available for many uses.
Then just mix the chopped chives into softened butter and return to the fridge.
I made another version later also adding finely chopped garlic and have found many uses for the butter. It will stay in the fridge for quite a while and is a good use of garden fresh chives. We have spread it on toasted bagels, mixed into scrambled eggs, and pictured below is a piece of the butter on a nicely charred filet.
