- Eating fresh Chinese chive helps heal bruises.
- The volatile oil of chives helps digestion and resolves mild food poisoning from meat.
- Children having excessive phlegm have bad appetite and breathing difficulty. Force-feeding them with a few tablespoons of Chinese chives juice or radish juice will induce vomiting. After vomiting, force-feed a few more tbsps. The phlegm will be expelled in the feces.
- Mild hiccups can be stopped instantly by one glass of Chinese chive juice.
Thanks to Jen Yu at Use Real Butter for the recipe. I'm not documenting the process because I screwed it up with stupid mistakes and I don't feel like laying bare my kitchen faults in this instance.
But you should try these, with leeks or scallions. Stay away from the chives unless you're feeling bruised and phlegmy.
