Too much swiss chard (silver beet)

… but the internet knew what to do. The-art-of-doing-stuff convinced me that, yes, you do need to blanche the the chard before freezing.

My problem is not so much the blanching but the cooling down in ice water. I do not keep icecubes in the house and buying some in a huge bag seems to be way too wastefull. But… the freezer compartment of the fridge had too much snow anyway and so we managed to get cold enough water.

No pictures of the silver beet forrest before the harvest, but some chard swimming in ice water and rolled up, and then packaged.
