Things You Need to Know about Kale Chips

If there’s any one thing I can tell you about making kale chips it’s this: make sure your kale is perfectly dry before you add your salt and olive oil and bake it. Water makes the kale chips softer and it will cause them to lose their crisp.

Another important thing to know is that they will go straight from underdone to overdone in the blink of an eye. So as your kale chips near their cooking time, keep you eye on them. Once the edges begin to brown, remove them from the oven.

The last tip that’s crucial is that they absolutely need to be baked in one single flat layer. Don’t overcrowd them and don’t add multiple layers. It will cause them to bake unevenly. Some will end up burnt and others underdone.
