Kale chips

Could have sworn I read directions for how to make these here just in the past two weeks, but I can't find them.

Anyone know how to make kale chips?

TIA.

1. I do it this way:

Soak the kale in salt water. Spin dry and roast until crisp. Add more salt if desired and enjoy.

2. Do they get real crispy? Do you then eat them as snacks?

3. Yes they get crispy!

They get crispier the longer you roast them. Eat them as is or crumble them and use them as garnish--they're yummy. And you can always add herbs/spices when you roast for extra flavor!

4. i just wash, spin dry, stem and chop

and throw them onto a half sheet pan in a low oven until they're all dried out.

I like them out of hand or crumbled over things. Dried kale used that way tastes almost like parsley, something else I like.

I like crunchy kale a lot better than I like soggy kale, even with lots of hot pepper and garlic.

5. I use balsamic vinegar on mine.

I use a combo of (unmeasured) balsamic vinegar and nutritional yeast, and rub it with my hands into the leaves. If you just stir it, it doesn't stick to the leaves the same way. Then bake til crispy. Here's an official recipe with more ingredients: http://www.cook4seasons.com/archives/kale-chips/
