Preparing Swiss Chard
Gorgeously colorful Swiss Chard is a member of the nutritious beet family. Its deep green leaves come with stems in rainbow hues of ruby red, yellow and white. Unlike many greens, these colorful stems are succulent rather than tough, and can be cooked on their own once the greens are cut away. In this quick video clip Ann will show you the quick way to prep them. Look and learn!
Have you ever heard of Kohlrabi? It is a rather strange looking member of the cabbage family and full of phytonutrients and vitamin C. It’s great tasting too. Kohlrabi is a fat, round bulbous veggie with collard like leaves springing from it. It’s great in soups, steamed or roasted, but first you have to get into it. Look and learn as Ann shows you how.
Mild and sweet tasting, leeks are a great addition to any recipes instead of onions.

Celery Root is one of the uglier veggies on the farm stand, but that’s no reason for them to stay home. Once you cut away their gnarly exteriors, inside is a delicately flavorful easy to cook low carb veggie that is delicious in soups, roasted of thinly julienned into salads. Ann will show you how.
