How to Prepare the Kale
The main stems of kale leaves are very fibrous and should be removed unless the kale will be cooked for a long period of time. To remove the stems, fold each kale leaf in half along the main stem, then cut along the stem where the leaf is attached. Discard the stems, then use the kale as desired.
