Swiss Chard

Braised Swiss Chard
1 bunch Swiss chard
3 tablespoons virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 small can of Delmonte tomato sauce
salt and pepper to taste

Clean Swiss chard with water. Cut off stems. Do not dry leaves; allow moisture to remain after washing.

In a skillet, braise the garlic in the olive oil until golden. Add Swiss chard, braised until wilted. Add tomato sauce.

Cook for 10 minutes over low heat.

Salt and pepper to taste.

SWISS CHARD WRAPS
9-10 Swiss chard leaves, at least 9 inches
1 lg. tomato, sliced and cut in half
1/2 c. Mozzarella cheese, grated
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. onion flakes
Salt and pepper

Steam Swiss chard for a few minutes. Do not overcook. Open leaves and brush on olive oil lightly. Put tomato slice in center of leaf - top with pinch onion - salt and pepper and one tablespoon cheese. fold leaf around tomato - this will hold together well.

Put on grill until hot - can turn once. Works best if you use a 2 sided grill that holds food in place. This can also be cooked in oven at 400 degrees for 10 minutes on a cookie sheet.

SWISS CHARD

2 lb. Swiss chard
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 c. chopped green onion
1/4 c. butter or olive oil
1/4 c. & 1 tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. celery salt
Pinch of nutmeg

Wash Swiss chard thoroughly; drain. Remove leaves from stalks. Tear leaves into small pieces. Set aside.

Cut stalks into inch size pieces. In large saucepan saute cut up stalks, onion, garlic in butter or olive oil. Add salt, pepper, celery salt, nutmeg and lemon juice to pan. Reduce heat. Add Swiss chard leaves. Cover. Simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. (To this may be added 1 tablespoon capers, 1 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes and sprinkled with cheese before serving.)

Are all pasted from the internet, seem slightly similar, but sound good. Perhaps gives you a creative start about what to do with your swiss chard, marye?

slow cooked pulled pork

I smoked a 9 pound piece of Pork Shoulder for 8 hours using hickory. Melts in your mouth.

Help! the neighbors gave me swiss chard!

I don't normally eat Swiss chard. What should I do with it? Also, got tomatoes and beans. Quite the eventful dog walk.

Anyway, ideas welcome, especially re the Swiss chard. I've got eggs. I've got cheese. I've got onions. I was thinking of doing a fritatta type thing but I've never actually made one.

Canola Oil

is indeed rapes-seed oil. I guess rape-seed growers were concerned about the name "rape-seed" and decided to change it to Canola. Since most rape-seed is grown up here in the Canadian prairies, they named it Canadian Oley (ola), "oley" being a botanical name for natural oils.

I prefer to use Sunflower Oil when I'm not using olive oil. I undersatnd from some people that canola causes certain alergic reactions.
