Chard Puree

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

Salt

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.
