Sailor and I do this a lot, I steam mine for about 15 mins after cutting stalks out, leaving leaf only, then slicing it up., but my mum used to leave stalks in. When serving a put a decent knob of butter and stir, then serve, we got it in garden ATM. I also put it in my onion bhagees, really nice.

Welps, unless I get otherwise "informed", I think I'll do the Chard this way, especially since I have some nice cherry maters that need using - - - and bacon speaks for itself in La Casa. Also think I'll just do half the bunch this time. :dont:

It's done and it's Larapin - - the tomatoes were a little dominant but I probably should have used the entire bunch of leaves - - - ain't my last time - - - - they're still on the stove awaiting lunch time - - - easy rice in a cooker and double dipped chicken fried chicken steaks with cream gravy. Wiffy's still asleep so ETA is who knows :dont:

Final Report:
The Wiffy LOVED THE CHARD (just the way I did it-but you know I just hafta change something the next batch) :laughing7:

So thanks to the Lawn'Gyland Lovers for turning me onto this Veggie :tup:
Also let me give Honorable Mention to Wild Bill's Atkinson's Chicken Breading once again :tup:
Also a big Woo Hoo to Suckle Busters SPG which I used in the Chard because I was out of Garlic :salut:

Now do I take a stroll or a nap after I clean up the kitchen :scratch: :dont: :roll:

How could I miss this?

Day late and a dollar short, OUP, but...Gotta eat the stalks! Cut them finer than the leaves and they should all cook the same. Chard gets sandy so wash it really well.

Yours looks like ours, all different color stalks. Usually, I dice onyawn, smash a garlic clove, slice some ginger and saute those in bacon fat or oil or both...then toss in the chard, steam until done, salt, pepper, and soy sauce. Russ's way of steamed, then buttered lets the chard flavor dominate.

You could cook chard any way you'd cook spinach or beet greens. Spinach cooks quicker, chard doesn't take anywhere near as long as collards.

Seems like you did well on your own! And the 'chard sides'.... :cheers: :chef: :salut:

PS: Nap first. :laughing7:

Sorry for the late reply OUP. You did quite well on your own. :chef:

If you like them alot and they're hard to find in grocery stores, keep in mind that they grow very easily in pots. Whenever we tried to kill our plants this fall, by cutting off all the stalks at the bottom, they grow right back. Kinda like the Eveready Bunny.
