This green leafy vegetable typically used in Mediterranean cooking is a very versatile vegetable with many uses. Fresh young chard can be used raw in salads. Mature chard leaves and stalks are typically cooked (like in pizzoccheri) or sautéed; the bitterness fades with cooking, leaving a refined flavor which is more delicate than that of cooked spinach. Nutritionally Swiss Chard is hard to beat containing many essential nutrients ie; Fiber, Protein, Vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, E and K as well as Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Manganese, Phosphorus, Potassium and Zinc. Chard is a biennial. Clusters of chard seeds are usually sown, in the Northern Hemisphere, between June and October, depending on the desired harvesting period. Chard can be harvested while the leaves are young and tender, or after maturity when they are larger and have slightly tougher stems. Harvesting is a continuous process, as most species of chard produce three or more crops.
