      Kale is just about my favorite vegetable. I use it mostly in my salads but also enjoy stir-fry. After watching the video on making chips I'm trying this. Thanks.

      My vegetarian daughter is a great user - and grower - of kale. An informative and interesting article. I'd never even heard of it as a child, but it now seems to be the 'in-thing.'
