More rain and stormy weather is predicted for today, but last night at 11:30 the first of the thunderstorms hit. They didn't last long, but they were intense.she had the BEST TART EVER. And since it uses chard I had to try it. Chard is just so prolific that if you can find a good recipe to use it up, life is good.
I used my frozen chard which made my life easier because I didn't have to wash and cook it. But it was also a problem as the recipe calls for a certain amount of raw chard. How much should I use? The recipe called for 3/4 of a pound. But cooked and frozen chard is not the same weight as fresh. Oh well I used up five packets for two tarts. I think it was a bit too much. Next time a tart will get two packets. I think that would be about right. That isn't to say more was bad, but it does make the tart heavy and hard to pick up for a party. And for me this is party food. The richness of puff pastry is not something I eat on a daily basis. Even with all that chard.
