  • I've been curious about how to use the chard. Does the stalk actually taste like celery or is it just similar? - 5/1/14

  • This is exactly how I figured out to prep my kale and chard. I've been cooking a lot of greens lately including kale, swiss chard, collard greens, broccoli rabe, spinach, and kolhrabi. All have been an adventure in cooking but I like them all! - 7/24/13
