amazing to think kale was invented less than a decade ago. i ate massaged kale in Brighton.

Now, we massage. Hit those leaves with a pinch of salt and a squeeze of lemon or a splash of vinegar, and then start crunching them between your hands. The trick here is not to over-massage. You know what’s worse than tough kale? Mushy kale. Over-massaged kale loses that texture we love so much. Rub the kale leaves together between your fingers, until they just start to wilt. The way to tell if you’ve hit the right point, as it is with most things, is to taste. You want to massage the leaves to the point where it you can feel a crisp and resistance in the bite, but aren’t struggling to tear away or chew. It should feel more crispy than rubbery.
