Recipe by MA HIKER
I don't do well growing spinach in my summer garden (too hot, it bolts) but Swiss Chard does very well. This recipes sounds like a great way to use it! I haven't tried it yet, will this summer! From May 2007 GH. They remark that this makes a nice pasta - serve with favorite pasta & 1/2 cup cooking water.
- 2 lbs swiss chard
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1⁄3 cup golden raisin
- 2 tablespoons capers, drained

- Trim tough stem ends from Swiss chard. Cut stems crosswise into 1-inch pieces; cut leaves into 2-inch pieces, keeping stems & leaves separate.
