1. Use a knife to separate the stalks from the leaves.

Make an incision at the base of the stem, break both sides, and gently pull the smallest part to remove gristle. Return the stalk, scoring about 7 or 10 cm, and pull on the section obtained. Then pull the filaments to eliminate them from the section.
Repeat until you reach the end of the chard stalk, and then proceed with the other stalks. Wash and drain the chard stalks.
