kale chips

No joke!  Hubbie & I, plus one kiddo ate an entire bunch of KALE!

Cut leaves off stems, tear into chip size bites, wash, dry with paper towels or use salad spinner.

Heat oven to 350 degrees, spread kale onto baking sheet (parchment paper optional).

Spray or drizzle (douse?) with olive oil.  Sprinkle kosher salt all over leaves.  Bake for 10-15 minutes, until edges are a tad brown.

A good for you $2 appetizer!  Thanks for the recipe, Susan!!  Click here for more kale recipes.

Hillbilly Warning:  kale bits tent to lodge in teeth…seek mirror or trusted friend after eating!

leapin’ greens

To some, attempting to eat greens (collard, mustard, turnip) may come once every four years.  I was in that camp…until recently.  My southern relatives will be proud.

At a buck twenty-nine a bunch, what’s to lose??

Above:  mustard greens.   Below the greens:  ham hock (surely you have one in your freezer!), two cans great northern beans (drained), one can chicken broth, bay leaf, wee bit Louisiana hot sauce, salt/pepper

Slow cook for 6-8 hours on low, or start on high for 1 hour then reduce to low for 4 hours.

The greens were SO tasty.  Similar to spinach, but more interesting & a better texture.  A greens only recipe:  any greens with a bit of water, butter, salt/pepper, splash of hot sauce, simmer on stove until done (45 -60 min).
