Yes. In case you were wondering, I did use the word 'woodier' in my video. So I make up words on the fly. Who doesn't?
Denise Huxtable isn't the only one who loves kale. I do too! Kale chips are usually the first thing I plunk down on the table for the guests.
I had better not need to get into the health benefits of green vegetables at this point. Seriously. I better not. Buuuuuut, what you might be interested in is my little video from Everdale farm on how kale grows- from seed to harvest to market to my kitchen.
1 bunch of kale
2 Tbs olive oil
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 tsp salt
- Preheat oven to 200
- Wash kale thoroughly and let dry
- Tear kale away from stem. Each kale leaf should be torn into about 6 or eight pieces
- Place kale, salt, olive oil and lemon into a bowl and mix together with your hands, gently massaging the kale with the oil, lemon and salt
- Lay kale out on a cookie sheet or pizza pan
- Place in over and set timer for 30 minutes
- At 30 minutes, remove from oven and gently unstuck kale from pan if it has stuck and replace for another 10-15 minutes until kale is dry and crispy
- Allow to cool. Can store in fridge for up to a week
