From newest book. Haven't tried. A member of the beet family, Swiss Chard is a cruciferous leafy winter green that delviers a good dose of beta carotene, potassium, and fiber. When preparing chard, cut off the thicker bottom inch or so of each stem and thinly slice the rest of the stem (it's tender), and add to the leaves when cooking. Spinche and kale make good substitutes for swiss chard when you want and change of pace.
