Other names:
There are several varieties of kale; these include curly kale, ornamental kale, and dinosaur (or lLcinato or Tuscan) kale.

Nutrition:
Kale is considered to be a highly nutritious vegetable with powerful antioxidant properties; kale is considered to be anti-inflammatory. Kale is very high in beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, lutein, zeaxanthin, and reasonably rich in calcium.

Taste: 
Has a taste much like other brassicas with a green earthy flavor.

Uses:
The entire leaf may be eaten raw or boiled or sautéed lightly until the leaf becomes a bright green.

Substitutions:
Other family members such as collard greens.

Storage:
To store, place kale in a plastic storage bag removing as much of the air from the bag as possible. Store in the refrigerator where it will keep for 5 days. The longer it is stored, the more bitter its flavor becomes. Do not wash kale before storing because exposure to water encourages spoilage.
