Also in your basket- Chard, Kale, Lettuce mix with edible Nasturtium Flowers, Lettuce head, cabbage or golden beets
With Chard and Kale we cut the leaf from the stems. The stems are edible but take longer to sauté then the greens. Chard takes about 3-5 minutes and kale takes 5-8 minutes to salute and be ready for eating. The stems can be sauce longer with your other choice veggies. Kale is great in a salad using vinegars to wilt it -google balsamic vinegar,kale, parmesan, walnuts -or some nuts and you will find variety of choices for kale vinegar salad. Greens can be stored in plastic bags or your favorite tupperware to prolong shelf life. We give all crops harvested (except tomatoes, some herbs, and a few misc others) a cool down bath in water to help hold the shelf life of the greens. Kale and chard often goes in our egg breakfasts with many other ingredients.
