Clip the kale, wash it well, steam blanch for 2 1/2 minutes, and then straight to the drying trays.
I had my dryer set at 145 degrees (F)
It took about 6 hours to dry.
Kale should be dried to crisp and brittle.
I removed the large stems before steam blanching and now all I have to do is store in a cool dry place and when needed break into my pot of soup.
Wahoo for painless preservation.
