What is the Best Way to Preserve Fresh Chives?

I grow chives in the summer and I always have more than I can use. Is it better to dry them or freeze them for future use? One year I chopped some chives then froze them in a plastic food bag, but when I thawed them out they were wet and kind of mushy.

Dehydrate/dry them. Chopped fine and then dried, probably in the oven would work best. There are lots of tips on the internet on drying herbs, etc. You might even be able to hang them to dry, but you have to have the right conditions for that.

Oh dear! I froze some last week (just to try it out).

Can't win 'em all, I suppose.
