Harvest Day - good old kale

Photobucket
Red Ursa is a great cold hardy kale (I like Dwarf Blue Curled Scotch as well) that is available through many fine heritage / OP seed companies. I got mine originally from Seeds of Change which is sold at Make it Green garden centre west of Ottawa.

Saying how-do-you-do from out of the snow and ready for supper as always!

This is going to be my first year growing & eating Kale. I'm trying Tuscano this spring, it has about 4 true leaves currently in the cold frame. This fall I am going to grow Vates, Coleman recommends this in his book for cold frame growing.

How do you cook your kale?

In quiche, with lentils, in stews, in salad, any kind of cassorole cut very fine (the kids don't notice it), even steamed with a bit of soy sauce is delicious.

Thanks for the ideas.
