Kale is one of the earliest vegetables cultivated by humans. Kale was often grown for decorative purposes. In the 1990s kale became more popular in recipes due to it’s high nutritional values. Kale is high in fiber and contains antioxidants. It is also a good source of calcium, and iron. Vitamins contained in kale include vitamin k, vitamin e, and vitamin c. A cup of cooked kale provides 3.6% of your daily potassium needs.

We used Saltwest Sousa’s Seasoning on our kale chips. This is a special blend made by Saltwest Seasonings. They based this seasoning on the sea-faring people of the Azores. The Azores is a Portuguese archipelago, and the place of their ancestors. They used the savoury flavours to compliment their local dishes.
