our new favorite greens recipe

I had a grandmother who didn’t cook with measuring cups and spoons; rather, cooking was like an art to her–part

Chard growing with our perennials

creativity, part experimentation.  Unfortunately, all her masterpieces died with her as she left no record of any of her recipes.  I’d rather leave some reference for my cooking inspirations, but like Granny, it’s all in the creativity so enjoy playing with this one.

Apples and Greens with Honey, Cider and Garlic

3 large handfuls chopped fresh greens (remember they cook down so 3 handfuls was enough for my daughter and me as a side dish)

half of a golden delicious apple, sliced thinly

half an onion caramelized

cider–approximately 1/4 cup

honey–approximately 1tbsp

3 cloves pressed garlic

olive oil–drizzled to lightly coat bottom of pan

salt and pepper to taste


Lightly coat bottom of pan with oil and add pressed garlic.  Heat on medium heat  until garlic starts to sizzle.  Add cider, apples, caramelized onions, and honey.  Stir and cook for 5 minutes on medium heat.  Turn off burner and remove pan.  Stir in greens until just wilted then serve with salt and pepper to taste.
