Kale and Chard

I grew kale for the first time two years ago and had no idea what to do with it. I have come a long way since then and thought I'd share what I do with kale and Swiss chard.

I blanch the kale and chard and stick it in a freezer bag. After the leaves have frozen, I grab a pint sized canning jar and pound the frozen bag of greens. I add them to ground beef, soups, spaghetti sauce, pizza sauce and potatoes and veggies of all kinds.

Great idea! I've often let my chard bolt because I didn't know what to do with the extra leaves.
