Southern style Swiss chard

Southern style Swiss chard

1 large bunch Swiss chard, roughly chopped, including stems

1-2 onions, finely diced

1-2 cloves garlic, minced (and/or minced garlic scapes)

2-3 tablespoons bacon fat, or olive oil

1-2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

Method: In a large frying pan or pot, sauté onions in bacon fat or olive oil until tender and translucent. Add in garlic and cook over medium heat for about 1 minute. Add Swiss chard and cook over medium-high heat until the greens are wilted and the stems are tender. Season liberally with black pepper and salt. Mix in apple cider vinegar, starting with 1 tablespoon and increasing amount if desired. This is delicious as a side dish, but we enjoy it served on fresh buttermilk biscuits accompanied by bacon and a fried egg for a tasty breakfast sandwich. The garlic scape aioli below is really nice on a breakfast sandwich!
