Kale

Kale is the common name used for a variety of a green leafed Brassica (cabbage family). It is an extremely hardy vegetable. Most kales have thick stems and robust leaves that do not form ahead. Many have curly leaves, which are the variety most commonly eaten. The attractive curly leaves are cooked in the same way as cabbage.
