Prevent waste by drying kale; sneak it into smoothies or recipes.
Kale, torn or cut into 2 to 4-inch pieces, large center ribs removed and finely minced (or reserved for another use)
Make sure kale is dried well. Place close together in a single layer on sheet trays; a little overlap is ok. Put in oven, turn oven onto lowest setting. Once heated, bake for about 10 minutes, then prop open the oven door with a wooden spoon or a little ball of foil. Continue to bake, stirring and rotating trays at about 30 minutes. If not completely crunchy, continue to bake, checking every 15 minutes or so.
Kale will need to be completely dry before storing. Store in glass jars.
Timing may vary depending on oven.
