Chard is a tall leafy green vegetable commonly referred to as Swiss chard and scientifically known as Beta vulgaris. Chard belongs to the same family as beets and spinach and shares a similar taste profile with a flavour that is bitter, pungent, and slightly salty.
Chard is best kept wrapped up in your fridge until you wish to use it. Suitable for home freezing.
Wash the stems, then cut them into strips, removing the stringy parts as you go. You can cook these in salted water until tender. The leaves can also be steamed and treated much like spinach.
