Swiss Chard Recipes
Oooh! How to buy Swiss Chard - thanks Martha Stewart! "Regardless of kind, look for crisp, vibrant green leaves with no yellow or brown marks. Avoid leaves with small holes. After a mild rinse, store chard in moistened paper towels in a plastic bag (with a few pinholes to allow air to circulate) in the refrigerator for two or three days." Note: we rinse ours with a few drops of vinegar & water.
