Braised Chard Southern Style

| April 4, 2018 | Reply

Sunday I made Braised Chard Southern Style. I bought Charlotte Chard seeds Gina from Open Circle Seeds at the National Heirloom Expo last September. I planted them in a small planter, and had gorgeous leaves in need of eating. The fog had rolled in and I had a hankering for some Southern comfort food. I hope you will try this recipe and let me know if you enjoyed it!


Braised Chard Southern Style

~ Ingredients ~

2 lb. fresh chard, trimmed & sliced

1 onion, chopped

3 slices bacon, chopped

4 cloves garlic, chopped

1/2 c. bone broth (or chicken)

splash red wine vinegar

pinch of chili pepper flakes

pinch salt

~ Directions ~

Prepare vegetables. In a large soup pan, fry bacon till crisp and fat has been rendered. Add chopped onion, and sauté till translucent. Add garlic and sauté for 2 minutes. Stir in chopped chard stalks, sauté for 2 minutes. Add broth and bring heat to a low boil and deglaze the pan, scraping the bacon bits from the bottom of the pan, which adds flavor to the greens. Work in the greens with a pinch of salt. You may have to work in two batches to get them all in. Stir, lower heat to simmer, cover, and cook for 30 minutes to 2 hours. Serve warm with vinegar and pepper flakes to taste.
