Kale is a hearty winter green that holds up well in soups and stews.
It can be eaten raw too but you'll have to give this tough leafy green a 3 minute massage first. To relax this leafy green, trim away the tough centre stalk. Wash in cold water, then shred or chop. To a bowl, add olive oil and get to work! It sounds odd, but this massage will transform your kale into a delicate and tender green, perfect for salads!
Kale becomes increasingly bitter the longer it is kept, fresh is best!
