It’s September and our chard crop is rocking. It seems to be the one crop that hasn’t been too badly impacted by the weather, nor eaten by the critters (i.e. groundhogs). We have a few customers that love it and order it regularly, but the market goers don’t seem to favor it as much. Consequently, I often go home with a bunch or two. Thank goodness we like it! One week we ate chard nearly every day…in salads, sauteed, with pasta, with eggs, with sausage…the options are seemingly endless. And, now, since it is so prolific, we have started to freeze it for future use. This is a pretty easy process that is outlined below.
We have only put up a few bags so far since it takes quite a bit to get what looks like it might make a meal or a side. This process is super easy…enjoy!
