Every spring the first thing to come up in the garden is the chives, Schnittlauch in German. My mother always makes this as soon as the chives are tall enough to cut. I know it's spring when I'm able to make my first Schnittlauch Butter Brot of the season. This is a great appetizer or part of a light lunch.
SERVES 2 TO 4
