Eating for the Season: Kale Chips

When a fruit or vegetable is “in season,” it’s at its peak in taste and value.  This is something I have to keep in mind when I want to eat, say grapes, 24/7- 365.  This month, kale’s season will come to an end (which doesn’t necessarily mean I’ll stop eating it!).  Here is an easy to make, kale chip recipe that is completely customizable.  I have suggested a few seasonings, but feel free to choose your own.
