Harvest Time

Welcome to our blog. I am excited to be able to share with you many topics from gardening, recipes, nutritional information and lifestyle tips to help you and your family. By now, most gardeners have reached the end of the fall season harvest. Last week, I harvested my favorite crop, both curly leaf and flat leaf kale. Kale has made the super food list in the health food world. Kale can offer more vitamin C than and orange, more calcium than milk and more potassium than a banana. I kept some fresh kale for salads and also made a large batch of kale chips. I placed the remaining kale in freezer bags to use later in soups and smoothies. I hope you were able to yield an abundance of produce from your garden and I would love to know what crop was your favorite. I welcome your questions and comments.

Kale Chips:

Tear fresh kale into bite size pieces and coat with olive oil (I like to use infused oils like garlic or butter), sprinkle sea salt over kale . Place in dehydrator for a few hours or until crip or bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until edges begin to turn brown. Store in air tight container.
