Packed with flavanoids, a powerful antioxidant that can help prevent cancer.

 

The flavanoids attack ‘free radicals‘ associated with the creation of rogue cells that can lead to cancer.

To Store: Do not to wash your chard until you are about to use it, so keep it in an airtight bag, up to 5 days. Freeze if not using soon –  Blanch by popping into hot water for 2 minutes, then icebath, dry off then into a bag and freeze.

Aside from the health benefits, this farm fresh veg looks very colourful on the dinner plate. You can cook it like green silverbeet: steam, stir-fry, or cook in a pie or frittata.
