Woohoo! It’s kale harvesting time!!!
OK, so not a full on harvest. Maybe a minor “plucking”? I tried with a few small plants. It was totally fun and I got some gorgeous leaves out of them. Next year, I will plant so many more.
So, what to do with all the leaves and the green yumminess? I washed them all and removed the stems. You can easily do this by running a super sharp knife along the stem. Then, I put the leaves in a Ziplock, no drying time needed.
What do I do with the Ziplock? Put it in the freezer!! Now I will have fresh kale for a few weeks to come. All I do is crumble it, frozen and all, into my Vitamix. There are my smoothies.
So eazzy peazy lemon squeezy!!!
IF you don’t have a Vitamix, you HAVE to get one. Let me know and I will give you the coupon code which saves a little bit.
