About Me: Swiss chard is a leaf green and member of the beet family. It comes in a variety of colours; white to all the colours of the rainbow. Swiss chard is high in potassium, vitamin A, and vitamin B. Small, swiss chard leaves, or swiss chard microgreens are great raw and the larger leaves are best cooked just a little.
To store: Put dry, unwashed chard in a mesh bag, or paper towel, and then place inside a bag, or container inside your fridge crisper. It will keep for about a week.
To freeze: Wash and cut leaves to desired thickness. Blanch washed greens for 2-3 minutes. Rinse in cold ice water to stop the cooking process, drain, and pack into airtight containers, and freeze. Use in soups, stews, and casseroles all through the winter months.
