Swiss chard - weight question

geekmom | Aug 5, 2013 10:35 AM

Can you settle a burning question? My recipe says "1 kg chard, stems removed, chopped". Do I remove the stems and then weigh the chard? I am concerned that this will give me way, way too much chard in the recipe because 1kg of chard leaves is a very very large amount, (the stems weigh quite a lot more than the leaves). I'm inclined to think that I'm supposed to weigh the entire bunch, THEN remove the stems...
