Has anyone any idea what to do with a bumper crop of Ruby Chard? First time we have grown it and are finding it tastes a bit too 'earthy' even when incorporated into pasta, and other dishes..(vegetarian options only!)

I love swiss chard and use it in salads, steam it like spinach, stir fry it, add it to stews and casseroles, and the chickens like it too.

If it is a bit earthy maybe the plant is a bit big, so it might be better not to eat the stalks, or just the thinner part of them.
Visit my website to see my chickens, quail, allotment and much more -

The plants have got rather large! First time I have grown it and it has thrived...and how. the more I picke the more it grows. It seems to freeze well too so am stock piling it as well as eating it. We have been leaving the stalks but i don't mind them, my husband hates them.
