Kale Potato Chips

This is a recipe from The Wards. One of  'R Garden CSA members. Here is the e-mail they sent. Soon I hope to try this one and add pictures. Thank you for sending in a recipe!

My family found a recipe we really like for kale. It’s kale chips- basically like potato chips, but using Kale instead of potatoes. Here’s the recipe:

1 bunch kale
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive-oil
1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
Sea salt to taste
1. Preheat an oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).

2. Cut away inner ribs from each kale leaf and discard; tear the leaves into pieces of kind of uniform size. (Mine were the size of potato chips, as given the nature of this recipe it just seemed appropriate). If your kale was still wet from being washed when you started, either spin dry in a salad spinner or dry with paper towels until they’re very dry.

3. Put the kale pieces into a large resealable bag. Add the olive oil and vinegar; seal and squeeze the bag so the oil and vinegar get distributed evenly on the kale pieces. Once that is done, spread the leaves evenly onto a baking sheet (make sure it’s metal, as I found that doing a recipe such as this on a clay baking sheet doesn’t get the bottom leaves crisp enough).

4. Roast in the preheated oven until mostly crisp, about 30-35 minutes. Season with salt and serve immediately.
