The Red Swiss Chard is freshly picked from the Pick Your Own farm, where we've visited last month.I also did mentioned about the PYO in my previous post too.
The Hewitt's Farm is situated in Orpington,Kent and its took about twenty minutes drive from my place to there.Moreover There's a car boot sales fair is held throughout the winter and also allowed to do a barbecue and picnic around summer.Obviously the farm is loaded with so much fun and excitement.
As I said earlier the orchards are almost ready to pick.We are going there end of August to pick those delicious apples,pumpkins,beetroot,broad bean,pears,plums and a lot more.
I turned the swiss chard into this delicious stir fry.I added red chilli powders for extra heat and color.We are mostly use dry anchovies or prawns for almost to every green vegetables dish we prepare except if is come as pure vegetarian or religious purpose.Here's the recipe.
