Early Swiss Chard




The stems were so pretty at
the Farmer's Market this
morning! I had to buy them.
You don't even eat those!
So I've got the leaves simmering
in onions and potato with some
spinach that I have , waiting
as it gathers it's juices to be
pureed. Recipe by Susan Loomis.
Maybe the cool morning made
me think of soup.

Actually, Bonnie, we really like to eat the chard stems. I posted about them here: http://ebenezerstoryteller.blogspot.com/2008/04/chard-anyone.html

They are beautiful, aren't they!
