Swiss chard

Swiss Chard is a wonderful green similar to spinach or kale. Not to be confused with beet greens the stem is wide (beautiful red or yellow colour) and leaves are all edible just give them a nice rinse and trim off the toughest end of the stem where it might have dried out a bit.



Check out our  blog post with a pizza recipe and links to a couple other recipes. You can also chop it and stir-fry it, or steam it then purée it to be added into tomato sauce, or freeze it for use in soups and other things later. To eat it raw it can be put into a tossed salad.
