What made us decide on Kale Chips? Well mom and dad like kale and say there is no taste to it so the kale tastes like whatever you put with it.. Mom tends to snack and doesn’t need any more weight on her. Ok…herbed kale chips coming up. Budd will you go pick some kale for us from the raised bed. Sure enough Shoko.
Should I wear my mask? Are you going to mew with anyone on the way to the kale? Naw….so I’ll just hustle out there and get some curly kale.
Got it Shoko and I put the kale in the sink. Tyebe can you wash any vermin off the kale. We don’t have vermin…the kale doesn’t need washing.
Tyebe!! Look at the spider running out from the kale. It needs to be washed. Well, geez sis he won’t make a mess. You’re just too picky. OK, ok….I’ll wash the kale.
There you go now what do we do? Now we have to cut out the rib that runs almost to the tip of the kale.
On a bread board lay out a leaf of kale and with a sharp knife slice the rib out without losing too much of the leaf. The ribless kale can now be cut in big pieces. I gave the kale to Budd after he washed his paws and he ripped big pieces.. This will give you a fair sized slice of kale, remember the kale shrinks as it dries. The ribs can be saved in the freezer for soups.
When the washing is finished put your ripped kale in a bowl and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of Italian spice. Then mix ingredients thoroughly.
Geez, the kale looks very wet. Oh well, it’ll dry in the dehydrator.
We didn’t use a whole bunch of kale. Ya, cause we thought it might come out yucky and nobody would eat it. We have 4 small trays of kale. Lay the kale out in the dehydrator tray with the sides just touching. They will shrink.
Ok, they’ve been dried for 4 hours.
The kale still looks wet.
Time for tasting, Tyebe, you and Budd can be the tasters. I’ll lie on the condo by the window in the living room so you won’t feel hassled.
Ohhh Shoko…yuck!! It tastes greasy and bites back. It’s kinda limp too. Really….let me taste too. Cwap!! This is green garbage. Tyebe, you have green in your teeth. How about you Budd? I like it…can I eat yours too. Shoko gives Budd the questioning eye and said “fill your boots.”
This means we must try it again right away but with a few differences. HERBED KALE second attempt
Wash and dry kale. Cut out ribs. Rip the kale in large portions. spread kale out on a flat surface such as your counter.
You will need:
1 spray can of Pam
spice jar of garlic powder
spice jar of clubhouse Parmesan & herbs seasoning
Hold the can of Pam away from the kale so it mists the kale. We used the buttery flavoured Pam. Any excess can be wiped on the backside of the kale cause you’re just spraying and seasoning one side. Sprinkle the garlic powder on the kale. Then sprinkle the Clubhouse Parmesan and herbs. If you like garlic put lots on your kale and the same with the clubhouse. We basically just sprinkled both over the kale. Now, we wait at least 5 hours.
Say, this batch looks much better. No shiny faces.
It looks like some leaves got more herbs than others. The leaves are more like chips though.
Time for the taste test. You’re nominated Tyebe. How about me, Shoko? Sorry, Budd but you seem to like even disgusting food.
It’s not nearly as wet looking. Mmmm…this is good, Shoks. It’s even crisp. The taste is mild and very pleasant.
