Swiss Chard with Poached Apples and Roasted Potatoes

The new apple crop has started appearing in grocery stores and farmers markets. There’s nothing quite like the flavor of fresh, tree-ripened apples. Tonight you’ll use these seasonal gifts as a feature in your greens dish.

Poached apple slices, seared fennel and thin-sliced Field Roast Apple sausage will share the spotlight with Swiss Chard this evening. The greens dish will be served over caramelized potato slices with a dusting of Gorgonzola crumbles to finish the plate. MMMM, MMMM, GOOD!
