    Default Kale recipes

    Hey everyone, Iíve never cooked kale before but heard itís really versatile and a good hungry gap filler so ive bought some seeds (in a seed buying frenzy I will not buy any more ) wondering how you all cook it- any good recipes
    I realise Iím a long way off having any to cook but Iíd like to make sure Iím not wasting my time and limited growing space
    Thanks in advance!

    I bought dwarf green cured from Simpson seeds but I’ve also got some Afro kale from Mr Fothergills as a freebie!

    I have some Afro kale too - same source.
    If you pick kale when its very young, you can add it to stir fries, even salad.

    Kale crisps?

    I like to use Kales in stews, gratins, curries or just as a regular veg accompaniment. I've tried Kale crisps that VC mentioned and they're also nice.

    Kale Seaweed! yum!! One of my must have crops as they don't seem to have many problems - though the pigeons will enjoy it if not netted. They used to leave it but now they eat that too!!

    My OH would eat kale every day, there's loads you can do with it.... one for Bren...who loves a gratin! It's delicious
