Chard Sweet Chard

At the market today, these beautiful bunches of organic chard from Full Circle Farm could not be passed up.  The leaves looked amazingly tender and fresh, so it was time to get my fiber on.  A daunting vision to my kids.  Their eyes large with concern...how could we possibly be expected to eat this mound of greens?  Why, add bacon of course!


I followed this recipe from Epicurious.com but substituted bacon for the butter.  We gobbled up the whole bunch and were maybe even a little disappointed at its shrinking nature when cooked.  Really, I could have sat, fork in hand, and made it a meal in itself.  The fresh swiss chard did not disappoint.  All I can say is go out and get some!
