De-stemming Kale in Pictures!

Kale stems are hard, and bitter even after cooking.  So when we eat kale, raw or cooked, I take the time to de-stem those curly green leaves.  I’m sure there are several ways to go about it, but I find this the quickest…and who doesn’t like quick?


Rinse kale, and fold leaves in half with the outer edge showing.  Using a knife cut just along the stem.



Pressing firmly, cut the stem away from those yummy green leaves and discard…feed stems to the chickens or compost.
