We are lucky here im Tippecanoe to have some winter “bonus” farmer’s markets. Today was one of them, so I went down and saw some of my favorite local food producers. My number 1 item on the list–kale. I even e-mailed Ginny Markle and asked her to bring extra for me. I have been quickly going through my dehydrated stash and knew we could use a lot more. It is the perfect “stealth” ingredient to add to most anything–just this week I added it to meatloaf and soup and last week to eggplant parmesan.
Here are some photos of the mountain of kale I am dehydrating this weekend along with some honeycrisp apples and some baby carrots I got this morning. Kale is off the charts nutritious- a true superfood. check it out for yourself: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kale
