    I would recommned using navy beans if you make this; I used great northerns and had to cook and cook them to get them tender enough to eat ( I had soaked them overnight, and still had to cook them another 2 1/2 hrs before they were edible, instead of the 30 min or so the recipe states.) By the time I had finally gotten the beans cooked enough, the kale resembled canned spinach that was way overcooked! Also, we really did not like the flavor that much, including my mother who loves beans and smoked turkey sausage. I would not make this again, sorry.
