We grow a lot of silverbeet, mostly just because it's easy. I actually prefer Kale as a green vegetable to accompany dinner. I've written about my love for Dwarf Green Kale. But, as silverbeet is so hardy, and self seeds, and is good for you, it's helpful to have uses for it.
We have recently taken to washing the silverbeet, steaming it lightly, chopping it up and then freezing it in ice cube trays. When frozen they come out of the ice cube trays and are stored in a box in the freezer. Perfect portions for breakfast.
We also keep ducks. At present we have two drakes (not a good idea) and 4 ducks. The duck in the banner photo we refer to as Mummy Duck. She's the one who manages to hatch out a brood every year - the others are not always so successful. In the past few years, we have had more failed nests than successful ones. This last season, the 2010-11 season, we had three nest attempts by two different ducks with only two ducklings hatched. Again, you've heard these tales.
At about this time of year, ducks are laying daily but are not hiding their eggs or trying to sit on them, so, we have loads of eggs. For breakfast, I use one of these egg steamer pans and cook a duck egg, a few cherry tomatoes and one ice-cube-tray-sized portion of silverbeet.
If you are familiar with these pans, you'll know that water goes in the bottom part. These black inserts are removable and a glass lid sits on top. Steam rises up through the holes in the tray and steams the egg and its companions.
