Where was this made?:

Chives, like most of the other species of the Allium genus, is edible.
A perennial plant, it is widespread in nature across much of Europe, Asia and North America. Its English name, chives, derives from the French word cive, from cepa, the Latin word for onion.
Chives are a commonly used herb and can be found in grocery stores or grown in home gardens. In culinary use, the scapes and the unopened, immature flower buds are diced and used as an ingredient for fish, potatoes, soups, and other dishes. Chives have insect-repelling properties that can be used in gardens to control pests.
