This puree is so good!!! You need a LOT of chard!
4 lb of chard, ribs removed
1/4 c chicken stock
1/4 c half and half
Pinch or two of nutmeg
3/4 c smoked bacon, cooked and cubed (I love CostCo’s cooked bacon bits)
Bring 8 quarts of water to a boil. Plunge chard into the water and cook 2 – 3 minutes to blanch. Remove and toss into a large blender, shaking off any excess water.
Add all the remaining ingredients EXCEPT the bacon to the blender.
Pour into a small pot, sprinkle with bacon and simmer until heated through.
