Each year for the last few years, Bountiful Blessings Farm has grown kale. We only have offered one variety of kale and recently have learned that there are other varieties people would like us to grow. One of those types or varieties is Dinosaur Kale or Tuscan kale, lacinato kale, black kale, or cavolo nero. This kale is an incredibly hearty cooking green with dark, dark almost blue-green or even black-green leaves and lots of earthy, nutty flavor. The leaves are so hearty that even when well cooked they retain a wonderful firm texture. Dino kale is particularly well suited to braising in a bit of broth. Or, simply blanch it in boiling water, then sauté it in olive oil with garlic and a chile or two, if you like. A sprinkle of salt and a squirt of lemon are nice, too. We will have Dino kale this year!!
