Kale chips in the dehydrator ... eh.

Yeah, that was my reaction when I ate them. I think I’m spoiled because I’m used to deep frying them, and kale deep fried tastes absolutely amazing. I think the frying causes some caramelization and so the kale tastes a little sweet, and it’s lost the “green” bitter taste it usually has.

I used this recipe minus the apple cider vinegar. Maybe I need to add that next time? Anyway, I took them out today and they were crispy and salty, but they were still “green” tasting, which I don’t really like.

I think I’ll try this again with the other bunch of kale I have and add the vinegar. I really don’t like vinegar, but maybe something in it will get rid of the “green” taste.

  1. Camy, what's the strangest deep fried delicacy that you've tried? The NC State Fair tops themselves every year with new additions to the deep fried menu. Bubble gum, Kool-Aid, Twinkies, Oreos, Coca-Cola, cupcakes...http://info.ncagr.com/DeepFried/?p=7949

    1. I actually haven't tried much of anything deep fried since our county fairs don't have anything really exotic. Captain Caffeine and I like to drool over the Food TV shows that talk about that kind of stuff.

  2. Well maybe I'll like them since I've never had them deep fried. :)

    1. They're not bad! Just not as good as deep fried.

  3. I've tried deep-fried kale chips and I didn't like them at all. I do actually like kale raw, though. I've tried fried spinach and had the same response. My husband, on the other hand, much prefers both greens fried.

    1. How neat! I've tried kale raw and don't care for it, although I like raw spinach. I've never fried spinach before!
