    Bacon,swiss Chard & Vacherin Cheese Quiche

    Can I have an apprx measurement for the chopped swiss chard? We grow ours, so I'll not be purchasing a 'bunch'

    Of course this is one of those amorphous measurements, since every market has different sizes of bunches of chard and other greens, and the sizes often vary depending on how plentiful they are in the particular week of the growing season. I would think something around 12 ounces of chard is what you are looking for. A bit more or less will be fine.

    If you check the detailed nutrition values on the recipe, a bunch was 384 grams, so that's the right ballpark.

    Whoa, this Grannie is out of her ballpark here. How do grams convert to cups? ( I'll try my friend 'google')

    Grams are weight, cups are volume. Converting will be different for each ingredient, as the same volume of one item might not weigh the same as another. You might be able to find a conversion for spinach and use that.
    An inexpensive kitchen scale makes things a lot simpler for many recipes (and portion control).

    The recipe doesn't call for grams, though. It calls for "a bunch."

    I should think the best way to measure this would be just to use as much as you could wrap your hand around.

    The detailed nutrition value lists the ingredient in grams, not a bunch, so it was assigned as weight value by the software. It was a logical way to find out about how much the standard might be. 384 grams is about 13 1/2 ounces.

    That might not be what the posting chef had in mind, though.

    You guys have been so patient with trying to set me straight on this recipe.

    Whatever the chef had in mind, I like the idea of an amount I can wrap my hand around. When we do the taste test, if it's not exactly to our tastes, I'll adjust accordingly. I plan to use this recipe for Sunday brunch

    Thanks so much.
