    Thanks for posting this! One hard-learned warning when making these chips: watch them carefully so they don’t burn or your house will reek of really nasty burnt kale for a day or two.

    I keep seeing these babies everywhere! I guess I should jump on the kale chip bandwagon! I love greens – and this would be just another wonderful way to enjoy them!

    Wow Amy! Like squash I am embarrassed to admit I’ve never had greens. There is just so much in the produce aisle that I walk right past. I made Butternut Squash Soup yesterday and followed your “How-To”, it worked perfectly and the soup is delicious. This sounds really fun and I’m very curious so I will be stopping by the store for Kale today. I am so inspired by your creations.

    Hi Amy! How random. I did a post yesterday afternoon on Kale Crisps also. Aren’t they wonderful?? Great gluten-free minds think alike :) Hope you are having a great day! -Jess @ ATX Gluten Free

    @Jessica Meyer, Yea, they’re fabulous! Did you make them the same way? Some people cook longer at a lower temp, others shorter on a higher temp. Also, I like to salt them after they come out of the oven because I found that the salt sticks in the ruffles if you do it the other way.

    @Amy, Hello again! I prefer to cook mine at 350 for 20 minutes and I salt mine before but good idea. I bet it does stick nicely if you salt afterwards!

    My thanks to Dawn for the tip. I’d never hear the end of it if the house reeked for 2 days. My husband and gr-nephew have a very acute sense of smell and they’d be moaning and groaning the whole time. Thanks again!

    Wow, who would have thought you can make kale taste like chips?!!! I am definitely trying these. I love reading Dinner With Julie too. She can whip out hose posts like nobody else. I also like that she is Canadian and there doesn’t seem to be to many Canadian food bloggers yet. Thanks for posting!

    @Chelsey, I didn’t believe it until I tried it myself. They’re great. Let me know what you think if you try them.

    Know very little about kale. We are looking at your picture and recipe here at the office. The woman I work with was able to tell me that her daughter fed it to her pet turtle– she knew what it was and looked like. I (of course) am clueless. No culinary diva here. We both can’t tell if the picture is a before or after the 350 degree nuke.

    @Gretchen, After the 350 degree cooking. Kale is full of great vitamins and minerals…you can read about it on Wiki.

    @Amy, …. is the picture pre-cooked or post baked?

    [Reply]

    Amy Reply:

    @Gretchen, Maybe you didn’t get my reply…sorry…sometimes this is a little glitchy. It’s post-baked. There’s some browning in the veins – I don’t know if you can tell or not. But, those are kale chips after they’ve been cooked up. They retain their nice green color.

    Amy Reply:

    @Gretchen, An after thought…there was a time when kale was new to me, too. I used to be a little weirded out by the thicker greens because I’d never had them. I love them now, though. Couldn’t imagine not eating them.

    @Amy, Had to see it for myself. Hard to believe that this foliage in the heat does not become wilted but retains its thick green structure. Thanks again for your response.

    I’ve been seeing kale chips popping up in blogs everywhere lately, and have really wanted to try them. Maybe I’ll add them to my grocery list for tomorrow and try them!

    I love chips. A friend of mine introduced them to me about a year ago. I toss mine in Olive oil and Ume Plum Vinegar and then sprinkle with with a little sea salt before baking. They taste like salt and vinegar chips. yummy

    So I finally made these! They weren’t bad. I encouraged my husband to try them and he was like “no way, they look like dried garbage”! and I said come on they’re good!” again he turned up his nose. So I forced them on him. “Too bad they’re going in the hatch” I teased. He took a bite and stood there motionless. “So?” I prodded. “What do you think?”. “They’re good!” He decided surprised. So thank-you Amy. He really liked them. So much so that he asked me to make some for him to take to work for a healthy snack.

    @Chelsey, I consider that a healthy victory! I haven’t made any for my hubby yet – but I am going to today but he just said if I made them he’s open minded and willing to eat a kale chip. :)

    Hi!
    Just made my first kale chips batch…love them!
    Now, my question is…..how do you keep them fresh…say…until tomorrow?

    [Reply]

    Amy Reply:

    @monica, I don’t think they’re a long-term keeper. I put them in an airtight container overnight and ate them the next day. But beyond that I’d throw them out.

    Getting rid of the rib altogether keeps them crispy longer.

    I’ve had really good luck with cooling the chips on a wire rack and storing any leftovers (???) in a zip top bag….

    One has to pay and that’s where the catch is; money for additional credits hence added advertising to the
    wrong potential clients. Link Building Services in Srilanka is
    one of the best services offered by the
