How to Store and Prepare Swiss Chard
Storage and preparation:
Basic Swiss Chard
Green chard leaves are best when cooked
like spinach, in the water that clings to the leaves after washing.
Simply pile the leaves in a large kettle or skillet set over medium
heat and cook them, stirring occasionally, until the leaves wilt and
seem to melt into themselves. The cooking time will depend on the size
and freshness of the leaves but will only be a matter of a few minutes.
Stir with a fork and serve or continue with the recipe. The leaves can
be also be boiled for 2 to 3 minutes in a large kettle of salted water
to cover and drained. This is a good way to cook the leaves if you want
them whole for stuffing. The leaves can be left whole, cut into strips
or chopped, depending on the dish you are making.
