This December we celebrate Kale, a nutritional powerhouse in the kitchen and a stalwart in the garden. You can plant this green at any point during the growing season, and enjoy it through the winter. It will stop growing once it gets cold out, but the leaves will remain intact on the plant for you to harvest whenever you need some for dinner.
Try it in pesto, smoothies, sauteed as a side dish or make the always popular Kale Chip. Click here to find out more serving suggestions, nutritional info and shopping tips. If you're felling adventurous, click here to see a recipe for Pickled Kale Stems, a great way to use up those leftover stems.
