Happy Holidays everyone! This weekend many gardeners got together to put up the lights in the garden--it looks so festive. Thanks for bringing some cheer to the garden this season.
And thanks to Amy Schwartzman and Maria Lazarini for sending in photos of the event. It looks like a lot of fun!

First wash the greens really well.
Then cut out the vein in the center
and chop into smaller pieces. You can see I have a lot.
Working in batches, submerge the kale into boiling water and let it boil for about 3 minutes.
Then immediately put into ice water for 3 minutes. You'll have to continue to add ice throughout the process, especially if you have a lot of greens so it's good to make sure you have plenty made ahead of time.
Drain the water from the kale.
Let it sit on a paper towel to get excess water out.
