Kale … what is it and how do you use it?!
Kale is a very reasonably priced veggie with lots of “good for you” stuff!
Nutritional Facts: One cup has 2g Protein, 354% Vitamin A, 89% Vitamin C, 9% Calcium and 6% Iron! And, it’s also considered an anti-inflammatory.
Martha Stewart says:
In Season: Kale turns sweeter in cold weather, so it’s at its best from mid-fall through early spring.
What to Look For: Choose kale with firm, deep-green leaves, avoiding any that are wilted or have yellow spots.
How to Store: Keep kale in the coldest part of your refrigerator, loosely wrapped in a plastic bag. Though it seems like a sturdy vegetable, kale will quickly wilt and turn bitter.
