Remove excess moisture and store in the refrigerator in a loosely sealed plastic bag. To extend storage life, cut bottoms of stalks to expose fresh ends, and place in a heavy glass filled with water. Cover the kale and glass with a plastic bag.
Before eating, wash your kale thoroughly. Remove tough stalks and central veins. Chop or tear the leaves for use in cooking. Mature kale is typically eaten cooked. It is quite versatile and can be boiled, steamed, sautéed, or mixed into soups and other dishes.
Kale is high in vitamin K, vitamin C and beta-carotene. It is a favorite among those who enjoy juicing because of its high chlorophyl content.
