The Art of Making Kale Chips with Gigi

Kale in the garden getting ready to be picked

Kale chips just from the oven.
Kale is said to be one of the world's healthiest foods. It is high in vitamins K, A and C, and that is just to name a few. It is said to have over 45 different kinds of flavonoids. It is probably better to steam kale but kale chips are our homestead's best option. I mean come on, kids love chips and moms love kids and husbands eating greens. Its a win/win situation.

Besides kale being so nutritious it is very easy to grow from seed. All that being said kale is the best. Gigi in pictures will show you how to turn this green goodness into a healthy yummy snack.
Picking kale from our garden.

Giving the kale leaves cool wash
to remove any dirt or bugs.
The drained kale is being prepared.

Gigi rips the leaves off of the stem.
The stems will not get crispy before the
leaves will burn so it is better to remove them.

Add olive oil or canola oil lightly over the top. 
Put in oven.

Remove when crispy.
Cook time varies, it is best to keep checking on your chips.
Remove from hot cookie sheet. Salt as desired. 

Kale chips . . . .yummy.
Gigi loves them!

So do I!
The results were delicious . . . .Great job Gigi!
