Swiss Chard & Joy

Post  Reverend Curlee on 7/25/2011, 2:24 am

Today I harvested some Swiss Chard from my garden and cooked it using a recipe I found online. It was delicious. I've never had Swiss Chard before today. I grew it because it was healthy and easy to grow. But beyond it tasting delicious, it was such a Joy to harvest, cook and eat something I had grown.

I love chard fresh, but it also freezes very well.

It's so easy to find Lavender Debs and thanks! I have 4 plants now, but will probably plant a couple more for the fall, after the Edamame is done.

How do you freeze Swiss chard?
Pick it, wash it, fold the leaf in half, one slice out comes the stem, slice into ribbons, blanch for 2-3 minutes, into ice water bath until cool, squeeze & drain, place in freezer bag then into the freezer. I did blanch the chopped stems separately to use in soups during the winter. A pound of fresh make about 1 quart of frozen leaf.
