How To Pressure Can Your Garden Kale

How To Pressure Can Your Garden Kale

Every year we plant kale in both our greenhouse and our garden. We choose red Russian kale because it is cold hearty and grows fast! We eat it in a salad every night during the summer and when it starts to cool off, we save it!

Every year we plant kale in both our greenhouse and our garden. We choose red Russian kale because it is cold hearty and grows fast! We eat it in a salad every night during the summer and when it starts to cool off, we save it!

Kale is great for us because it can withstand a pretty decent frost before it starts to go limp and die off. I cut our kale on November 20 from outside and the greenhouse and it was still crisp. We don’t like food, especially nutrition-packed greens, to go to waste, so we can do everything we can. It’s surprisingly easy and really good!

Red Russian Kale – A Powerful Punch of Protein and Antioxidants

First, we can kale for two reasons, one because we love it and two because we can! But kale is great for you and if your kids grow up eating it, they won’t have an aversion to it when it’s in a salad. In fact, it’s often called a “superfood” and it’s incredibly easy to grow even in cooler climates.  A single serving (one cup) contains more than a day’s worth of vitamin A requirement, which is important for eye health and immune function. It is also full of vitamins K, C, and B6 as well as manganese, copper, calcium, and magnesium. A can of cooked kale has a mere 32 calories, 2.2g of dietary fiber, 2.3g of protein, 2.55mg of iron, and 198.90 mg of calcium.
