Erin SheehanWe grew kale this year for the first time. We didn’t know how much to plant and went a bit too far, I’m afraid. We ended up with a lot of excess kale. We also found out that we don’t really like kale that much! In an attempt to make it palatable, I started experimenting with kale chips. After a bit of trial and error I landed on the recipe below. They taste great and are a reasonable substitute for potato chips or pretzels.

Kale is easy to grow, you pretty much put seeds in the ground, water, and let it go.


If you are tired of spending $4.29 for 2 ounces of kale chips (the actual price at our local Shoprite!), save some room in next year’s garden for kale and give these a try.
