DEHYDRATED MAPLE KALE CHIPS RECIPE
Required Kitchen Equipment
Step 1: For step one you will need to gently wash your fresh kale under cool running water. Use a produce scrub brush or your finger tips to clean the kale, making sure that you get any hard to reach places where dirt may be hiding. I strongly recommend spraying the kale with an all natural produce spray before rinsing it, as this will remove any bacteria or dirt. Once your kale is totally sterile you will then need to dry it off completely using a paper towel. You won't be able to properly coat the kale chips with oil and seasonings if it isn't totally dry. Next, take out a sharp kitchen knife and cut away the thick inner kale stalk and any of the thick veins running through the leaves, as they're inedible. Save the stalk for juicing as it's loaded with vitamins and minerals. Lastly, you will need to shred your kale into medium size pieces.
2 Tablespoons of Real Organic Maple Syrup
2 Tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/4 Teaspoon of Ground Cinnamon
Step 2: Take out a large mixing bowl and then place your shredded kale chips into it. Next, take out a smaller mixing bowl and then pour into it the real organic maple syrup, extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, and ground cinnamon. Using a whisk rapidly stir the olive oil mixture together until a smooth and consistent color forms. Pour the olive oil mixture over the top of your kale chips and then manually mix them using clean hands. Continue mixing the kale chips until each piece is evenly coated with oil and maple syrup. On a precautionary note, try not to smash or crunch the kale up during the mixing phase as this will cause the chips to lose moisture and wilt.
Step 3: Take out your food dehydrator trays and then arrange your maple syrup and olive oil coated kale chip pieces out on them. The chips can slightly overlap, however, you definitely do not want to stack them on top of each other as they'll clump together during the dehydrating process. You will want to dehydrate all of your prepared kale chips in one session.
Step 4: Slide your trays into the food dehydrator and then set the temperature to 115 degrees F, or 46 degrees C. You will need to dehydrate the kale chips for 4 to 6 hours at the aforementioned temperature. At the four hour marker begin frequently checking on the kale chips until they're fully dried and crispy. Once they've reached a crispy chip like consistency you will want to remove them from the dehydrator. The kale chips can be served immediately. They're particularly tasty warm straight out of the appliance.
Storage: These delicious dehydrated maple kale chips will stay fresh for up to 14 days. You will need to pack them away in a sealed airtight plastic or glass container. Be sure to keep them away from any direct sunlight or heat sources. A dark room temperature cupboard or pantry is an ideal storage location. Never refrigerate your kale chips as this will cause them to quickly become limp and soggy.
