Technique: Massaging Your Kale!
Just learned about this new technique and thought I'd share:
Not only should you EAT MORE KALE, you might also want to try:
MASSAGING YOUR KALE!
Wash and remove (then discard) stems, as always. Then, rip the leaves into bits and literally massage them for a few minutes. You'll literally feel the texture change in your hands, rendering a softer, gentler version of what one was a bit on the tough side. Then use the leaves in a raw salad, or throw them in the cast iron skillet & saute!
This is definitely one time when playing with your food is acceptable! Have fun!
