I made kale chips by tossing de-stemmed leaves (broken into smaller pieces) with canola (an oil I hate to use but didn't want to use the last of my coconut oil on an experiement! don't think melted lard would have worked?!) and salt, garlic powder. They went in a single layer on a baking sheet for 35ish min at 250 and were pretty tasty - light, crispy, and flavorful.
I was wondering if I could try doing something to get a similar crispness but... thicker than a dehydrated leaf lol. Like a cracker, maybe? Food processor to sort of puree the leaves, fat, and seasonings, and then spread it out on a baking sheet??? I may feel brave enough to try this but I always love to hear ideas or experiences. oooh, maybe this way I could use lard!?
thanks in advance for ideas.
