Kale chips may be the biggest new sensation on the snack market. With the feverish pursuit of health, kale chips were bound to happen. I can consume a rather pricey bag of these chips in ten minutes, still wanting more. How about you?
The answer to this dilemma is to make your own kale chips. This is absurdly easy to do and if you have kale growing in your organic garden, you are set. Turning out a daily batch of kale chips can become as routine as brushing your teeth.
To make the chips themselves, you can use an oven or a dehydrator. Both methods work quite well, though we do have a preference for the low-heat dehydrator.
If you have a food dehydrator, by all means use it for your kale chips. The low heat protects precious nutrients lost to the baking process. Dehydrating is super easy. It takes more time to crisp, but there is no danger of burning your kale as you would have if you baked your kale chips.
