Ever since getting my first dehydrator in 1999, I’ve been making kale chips to varying degrees of success. They fascinate me, because kale is the most nutrient-dense vegetable on the planet. With the right seasoning, kale chips can be the most delicious multivitamin you ever ate. So there’s one goal: tricking people into eating health food.
Since ending this blog, I’ve felt a need for a creative outlet, food-wise. So many people have pushed me to sell my kale chips, I figured that’s probably the most efficient way to share them. The kinds you find in stores are exorbitantly expensive, full of cheap fillers, and not so tasty (not the mention the disconcerting presence of a silica pack). So, I found a few friendly folks who happily put my kale chips on their shelves.
- On Monday, Oct. 8th, I’ll drop off a batch of Kashmiri Curry kale chips at Camden’s Dogtown Market on 7th Street in Manchester. They’re rich and hearty, heavily spiced with lingering heat. Because I pureed raw cashews into the sauce, there’s a slight creaminess that makes the kale chips kinda saag-y.
- The next batch will be idunno-what and you’ll find them idunno-where nor when exactly (but watch this space).
This is a hobby. My day job and family life come first. Making a profit and building a brand aren’t high on my priority list. Just fun with food and hoping a few people enjoy it. But, it sure would help if someone would bring me a 10lb box of curly kale every week or so.
