(Anna B: inspired by maple-braised collard greens at Hot Suppa)
Equipment: large skillet or saucepan
1 bunch chard (rainbow is the prettiest)
1-2 tbsp butter
Salt to taste
1 tbsp maple syrup, or to taste (a little goes a long way)
Rinse chard and leave the water clinging to it.
Separate chard stems from leaves. Chop stems to medium dice and leaves to
Sautee stems in butter over medium heat until softened and slightly
Add leaves and maple syrup. Salt to taste as the leaves are wilting. If
your pan has a cover, put it on so the leaves can steam, stirring
occasionally. Cook and stir until the leaves give up juices, just a few
minutes. Serve warm.
PS The chard would probably be good with a splash of bourbon, too. And/or
barbecue sauce, or even chipotle? I’m still experimenting)
