Swiss Chard comes in many colors: white, yellow, orange, pink and red. They serve as a stunning ornamental and make for a lovely border in your flower garden and are beautiful and practical in the veggie garden too.
Swiss Chard is very high in nutrients, and very versatile in the kitchen too. The young leaves make a colorful addition to a salad. Whether you steam the leaves, fry them boil them or eat them raw, they add an interesting element to your meal.
One of our personal favorites, passed down from our Ouma, is to chop an onion and two potatoes, boil them, add the chopped Swiss Chard and cook until tender. Once cooked and all the water has boiled off, add dollops of butter and mash well. The potato and butter combination adds a unique flavor and texture to the Swiss Chard. Our absolute favorite way to prepare Swiss Chard!
