Storage: Swiss Chard stores best in a plastic bag in the crisping drawer of your refrigerator.
Preparation: Swirl leaves in a sink or large bowl of water until free of grit. Drain and pat dry. The stems are edible, but a bit tough and require more cooking time. If you prefer to remove the stem, fold each leaf in half lengthwise and cut out hard vein.
Taste: Tender, sweet, velvety. Rainbow chard and swiss chard taste the same
Nutritional Benefits: Swiss chard is a nutritional powerhouse -- an excellent source of vitamins K (more than 300% of your daily requirement!), A (for eye health), and C (for immunity), as well as a good source of magnesium, potassium, iron, and fiber.
