How to cook Swiss chard

Birmingham | Apr 8, 2011 11:19 AM

I have planted my first vegetable garden and have 2 types of Swiss chard--even though I've never eaten it in my life and haven't the faintest idea what to do with it. (Went for it because it's easy to grow.) In a vegetable gardening book, there are a couple recipes using Swiss chard, but they both begin: "Cook 1 pound Swiss Chard..." Well...how exactly? Any way to figure out 1 lb of greens without a food scale, or am I going to have to get one? Any recommendations?

If you've got a favorite easy recipe for Swiss chard, would you share?
