making more kale crisps

March 7, 2011 at 8:13 pm 4 comments

Ten minutes to make, two minutes of melt in the mouth bliss:  the easiest way in the world to eat a whole plate of vitamin zinging greens and feel like it’s a cheeky treat.
Ok, so perhaps that’s just me – G can take or leave kale crisps and mostly leaves them.  To say ‘I love kale crisps’ though is no exaggeration so I’m more than happy to munch alone!

Resorting to shop bought curly kale makes for smaller more frazzled crisps than the chunkier home-grown kale crisps I’m more used to tucking into.  But any lack in texture was more than made up for in taste by using home-made raspberry vinegar. Truly delicious if you like that sort of thing!

    Fantastic. Thanks for the idea Nic. I LOVE kale anyway, but tried this way of cooking just now (and added a little chili and garlic) and I’m hooked. x

#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #allotmentgardening #paintedtyregardenplanters #paintedtyres #gardenersworldlive These fab painted tyre planters were part of a show garden at @bbcgwlive in 2005.  They're teaching me a thing or too about blog traffic as I try to get my head around SEO and why some posts have lots of hits and some have none.  2826 people have searched for painted tyres since I shared it in 2011 as a #wordlesswednesday post.  I've now added in some copy about the day and some of the other photos.  Just shows that adding useful titles to your images can be as helpful as writing relevant copy!

#gloucesterlife #indoorsnowplay #childhoodunplugged A funny little momento from our walk on Crosby beach - holding hands and gazing out to sea :0). #anotherplaceanthonygormley #nipitinthebudblog #visitingliverpool A conversation with @hoshistarhoshistarhoshistar today reminded me of a visit to Liverpool in 2010.  100 cast iron, life size figures spread out along three kilometres of Crosby beach and stretching one kilometre out to sea.  Spectacular.  It's worth checking tide times if you want to be able to walk along the beach.
