So You Want To Make Kale Chips!

If you’ve already tasted Kale Chips before, you know they are good, and you’re about to learn how SIMPLE it is to make Kale Chips at home.

If you haven’t ever tried Kale Chips and you’re unsure about whether or not you’re going to LIKE them, I have GOOD news for you.  It’s not only Health Fanatics that like them; Kids go crazy over Kale Chips.

Not only is Kale a more healthful choice than most chips; It’s loaded with nutrients and it’s considered STRONGLY Anti Inflammatory.

Your AVERAGE sized bunch of Kale contains:

  • More than 600% of your daily Vitamin A
  • More Than 400% of your daily Vitamin C
  • More Than 2000% of your Daily Vitamin K
  • About 30% of your daily Calcium
  • About 20% of your daily Iron Needs.
  • Many other nutrients.

An adult can easily eat a WHOLE head of Kale in the form of Kale Chips; So you’ll be loading up on the nutrition.

Kale Chips Recipe

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 to 3 bunches of Kale (The Only Ingredient You Need)
  • Flax Oil
  • Sea Salt
  • Cayenne

The Flax Oil, Sea Salt And Cayenne are optional ingredients, as most people will like Kale Chips completely unseasoned.  But… Don’t hesitate to add these ingredients to your Kale Chips if that will get you eating them.

Directions For Making Kale Chips

Take your 1 to 3 bunches of Kale and wash and rinse them.  Cut each Kale branch into 3 or 4 pieces.

Layer your Cut Kale in your dehydrator and turn the temperature to 115 to 118 degrees before turning it on.  For Raw Kale Chips you’ll want to keep the Temperature at 118 degrees or less.  It will take 2-3 hours for your Kale to be properly dehydrated.

For a quicker dehydration time, turn the temperature to about 130 degrees;  This will compromise some of the nutrients, but your Kale Chips will still be VERY nutritious.

Now… Eat Your Kale Chips.  Yummm.  If they are NOT good enough for you plain, sprinkle some good sea salt on them after drizzling a little Organic Flax Oil.  Dust them with a little Cayenne if Spicy is your thing.

    What a great video! Yes I want to make kale chips – I especially liked the ingredient list: kale! I have six grandchildren – I can’t wait to make these for them! What kind of dehydrator do you have?

    • Hey Peggy Sue. Very nice to get this message from you. So happy you enjoyed the video.

      I think your grandkids are going to love the Kale Chips. Please let me know after you’ve had a chance to make some for them.

      Our dehydrator is made by Nesco. It’s a simple inexpensive one with 4-5 layers. of trays. I may eventually get a better dehydrator, but this one definitely serves its purpose well for now.
