Swiss Chard is a gentle reminder of the miracle of life, and how we have little or no ideas what color will emerge from the simple seed!  As I weed the Inn's garden by early light, I am enthralled by the palette of colors that are pushed up by the Chard seeds.  A rainbow from brilliant yellow to the deepest purple.  We love to garnish plates with the leaves, but do not forget to enjoy the nutrients laced within the flavorful crunch!
Try braising Chard with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and chopped garlic for a great vegetable side dish.
