Here is a quick, easy and resourceful way to use the stem of swiss chard and turn it into a crunchy snack.
There are many ways to use the leaves of swiss chard but most times the stems get discarded. I came across this recipe for Spicy Pickled Chard Stems and I thought I would give it a try. I must say, the recipe was a success.
What most will like about the recipe is how easy it is to make. The pickling process is done by refrigerating the stems with the brine you mix together. You simple cut the stems from the chard and chop it into the length of the jar. Add in seasoning/spices. Boil the brine and pour it over the stems. Let it sit two days and you have a crunchy snack.
