Chard Gratin

We debuted this dish at a farm supper and concert five years ago, and it turned out to be quite a hit and remains one of our event standards.  Creamy chard steaming with sweet onions under a layer of bubbling, browning cheese…need I say more? I have been craving this lately, so made a household size […]

Smokey Braised Mexican Pumpkin

Pumpkin isn’t just for pies!  If you want to bridge summer and fall cooking with the last of the fresh tomatoes & peppers but adding some lovely pumpkin to your tacos…here you go.  We made this as a vegetarian option for taco night, but I bet with a little pork, perhaps some pork jowl, it’d […]

Horta from Mark Bittman

From Mark Bittman’s How to Cook Everything Vegetarian   This is a standard Mediterranean preparation for greens. They can be almost any green you like, from chard and beet greens to kale, collards, spinach, turnip or mustard greens, even arugula. A mixture is great too. This recipe is also perfect for leftover cooked greens.   […]

Chard Fritters

With enough time to cook, garlic scapes will wrinkle up and begin to brown and their garlic flavor will mellow and […]

Bittman’s Stuffed Chard Leaves

from Mark Bittman “A new take on Greek dolmades, grape leaves which are stuffed with rice and meat or lentils. This version is easy enough to be part of any Mediterranean- style spread, since the herb-based stuffing comes together in minutes and requires no cooking. A variety of other grains (barley, farro, wheat berries) also […]

45 pounds of Chard

Megan and lots of chard! The food processing has begun in earnest!  Megan and Donna persevered despite Liva’s repeated deliveries of larger and larger baskets of chard to process.  45..or more pounds later, the winter food security is well on its way.  45 pounds of chard have been harvested, washed, chopped, blanched, dried, packaged and […]
