Kale Crisps

In the Time Zone and at the Latitude Where I Live, a very small bag of Kale Crisps costs nearly $9! I bought a bunch of kale and made my own Crisps - identical to the purchased kind and nearly nine times cheaper!  
Kale Crisps:
1 bunch of kale
1 tbsp. olive oil
½ tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. seasoned salt
Preheat oven to 350 deg. F. Rinse kale, tearing into slightly larger than bite-sized pieces - they will shrink as they bake. Whirl dry in a salad spinner, or blot dry with paper towels. Transfer dried kale to mixing bowl. Combine olive oil, garlic powder, and seasoned salt in a small bowl. Pour over kale, combining well with a large spoon. Lay in a single layer on a parchment-covered baking sheet. Bake 15 min., until edges start to brown and kale is well-dried and crisp. Turn off oven, leaving kale to dry an additional 5 min.

Whirl dry: Wheeee!

The stalks and tough ends are bound for the stock pot

Add combined olive oil, garlic powder, and seasoned salt

Toss well, until kale glistens slightly. Resist
the temptation to add more oil or seasoning!
