Locally grown using organic practices by Valley Flora Farm (Langlois) and Ocean Air Farm (Ft. Dick, CA), and coming to you from one or the other, usually based on the size of the harvest and the time of year.
Varieties can include White Russian, Red Russian, Red Ursa, or Siberian, and vary depending on the farm and the season. Red Ursa has meaty leaves complemented by a sweet stem; Siberian Kale is very tender, with mild, green leaves; White Russian Kale has tender green frilly leaves with white ribs – the Red Russian is similar, but with red ribs.
You can cook kale many different ways and add it to all kinds of dishes, making it super easy to get more greens into your diet. And, unlike some other veggies, cooking kale actually increases some of its “superfood” power. Kale works in salads, too, provided it’s either “baby” kale, or it’s chopped up good. To store: rinse, pat dry, trim any bad spots, and store in the bottom crisper drawer wrapped in paper towels.
