Chard, Red - 1 ct
Chard is known for being solid and earthy, a substantial side or the humble basis of hearty soups. But the array of shades in the stems and veins of this variety make it a bit of a show-off. Dynamite in a sauté and especially lovely for summer salads, chard is an excellent source of vitamin C and the antioxidant beta carotene (a pre-cursor for vitamin A), plus it's a good source of potassium and magnesium.
We strive to choose only organically grown or certified organic produce from as close to home as possible. However, sometimes we are unable to find a local AND organic option, and in that event we may choose to offer a pesiticide-free local product from a farmer that uses integrated pest management on their crops.
Denton Creek Farm is located in Ponder, TX, 10 miles west of Denton. There 40-acre farm produces a wide range of fresh seasonal organic and sustainable vegetables. Famous for their organic tomatoes, super sweet cantaloupe, and delicious leafy greens.
MORE FROM THIS FARMER
Do not wash Swiss chard before storing as the exposure to water encourages spoilage. Place chard in a plastic storage bag and wrap the bag tightly around the chard, squeezing out as much of the air from the bag as possible. Place in refrigerator where it will keep fresh for up to 5 days. If you have large batches of chard, you can blanch the leaves and then freeze them.
