How To Preserve Kale
One more food blog.
I am part of a C.S.A. (Community Supported Agriculture) Program with Mulberry Creek Herb Farm.
We had a pick up today and this was some of our haul.
We have been getting a lot of Kale. Not my favorite thing, but…it is wonderful in soups and stir fry. I want to share with you a way to preserve it, or keep it for later to add to your soups, stews or stir frys.
Start with fresh Kale…rinse well to get the sand out and spin dry. This spinner is a wonderful gadget that can take excess water out of greens or whatever.
Bring a pot of water to a rolling boil and add Kale in batches. Let it boil for three minutes. Remove to a colander and plunge into ice cold water for an equal number of minutes.
When all the Kale has been prepared this way, spin again….then lay out to dry for 30 minutes or so.
Place in Freezer bags and squeeze as much air out as possible.
Break off what you like to add to your soups and stew whenever you like.
