This is my first encounter with cooking kale. I had some in our fridge and had tasted a leaf raw and it was very peppery. A few days later I tried it again (same area on the leaf) and it had mellowed out to being a strong broccoli-stalk like flavor. (I have read before that many lettuces turn bitter after/during the hottest part of the summer and they mellow if kept in the fridge 2-3 days before consuming). I was drawn to this recipe because we love garlic and I thought it might help us to acquire a taste for including kale in our diet. I cooked it exactly as specified in the recipe. My husband loved it, the kids and myself forced ourselves to eat it. IMO, it wasn't horrible, just very strong and not something I could eat on its own as a side dish. I had made fried potatoes with bite-size meat, so stirring about 2 T. of this kale into the mix made it easier for me to tolerate. The only reason I'll make it again is because we have a tortoise who eats kale, but doesn't eat as much as what comes in the bundle. I can't bring myself to toss out the 'extra' so we'lll keep trying. It's healthy at least!
