    Cookgirl's Note:

    Mom would prepare this for us often when fresh chard from Dad's garden was plentiful. When I finally wrote down the recipe, Mom couldn't give me exact measurements, as all good cooks are guilty of. I think this recipe is based on traditional Mennonite/Pennsylania Dutch fare, since my Dad was from that region. A blast from the past!

      This was so good! I've grown Swiss chard for a couple of years now and didn't really know what to do with it. Now I do! I added a little chopped onion but kept everything else the same. Delicious!

      Oh, this was so yummy! I played around with the recipe some to suit our mood--I added a can of cooked black eyed peas, and since we wanted more "pot likker" I doubled the vinegar and added about 1/4 c stock. I served it over rice cooked in stock, and since I made it for the Veg Swap I used liquid smoke instead of bacon fat. I still followed the recipe directions as written, boiling the vinegar and sugar together then adding the greens. My entire family gobbled this up, all the way down to the 8 month old :). Thanks, CG! Made for Veg Swap 35.
