Homemade Living Series-Krunchy Kale Chips

Welcome back to the 
Homemade Living Series.
This week Staci, Sue and I share our homemade ideas.

This Red Russian kale was acquired from my farmer friends Faye & Lynn.
I've never been able to eat anything in the brassica family
because it just plain, tears me up.
After a bit of research on this true superfood,
I decided to give it a try.
Kale is rich in fiber, calcium and iron, all nutrients I could use more of.
Kale chips seemed like the way to go.

I rinsed the greens.
They are pesticide-free, so a quick bath did the trick.

Drying is the most important step in the process.
The greens must be totally dry or the chips won't crisp up.

I even laid them on tea towels outside for a bit.

I tossed them with a little olive oil, salt and garlic powder.
You can make them spicy or not.
They were baked in a 275 degree oven for 10 minutes,
then turned over and cooked another 10 minutes.

They fill the need for that crunchy craving 
while adding so many good nutrients.
Hmmm, what else can be made into chips...

Next Wednesday Jackie, Mary and Tammy
  will share their ideas as our Series continues.
