Storing kale: this is how it works
If you store kale incorrectly, it quickly becomes bland and loses vitamins. To prevent this from happening to you with your kale, you should note the following:
- Store the kale in the vegetable drawer of your refrigerator. This is at the ideal temperature so that it does not become shriveled.
- Before storing, trim off only as much of the kale as you plan to cook. You should only wash the remaining part for storage if you also want to eat it.
- The kale can be kept this way for about five days. However, this time also depends on how fresh you buy it. If it has been in the supermarket for a long time and the leaves have already turned yellow, you must eat it more quickly.
- Alternatively, you can store the kale in a dark, not the too warm corner, for example in the basement. However, you should then use it up within two days.
- You will have something of the kale for a particularly long time if you freeze the kale.
