I don’t think I’d ever heard of chard until some arrived on my doorstep – admittedly I’d paid for a vegetable box to turn up, although it turns out the Terms & Conditions of the service are a bit shocking and I’m rather tempted to do bad things to the company.
However at least I have now discovered chard, which turns out to be a weird vegetable that looks like rhubarb and tastes like bland asparagus.
The leaf and the stalks need to be cooked separately as the leaves only need to boil for 2 minutes and the stems take 4 minutes.
Apparently supermarkets don’t tend to stock chard as it doesn’t keep well, but it is apparently easy to grow… which is what I am now trying to do!
