Steamed Chard With Candied Ginger

Total Time

I forget where on the web I found this recipe, probably at a CSA farm website, but it stated the recipe was adapted from Vegetables from Amaranth to Zucchini, by Elizabeth Schneider. I forgot the zest and I used crystallized ginger, which I assume is essentially the same as candied ginger. The sweetness of the ginger combines well with the flavor of the greens. The seasoning amounts depend on your personal taste.
