I have a beautiful crop of kale this year, I have been using it for kale chips almost every day which are wonderful, in soups and smoothies. Anyone know of a way to preserve it?

It will keep deep into the fall and early winter. Best way to make it last.

In climates of light frost, it lasts all year long and is just a wonderful cut and come again plant.

I freeze both collards and kale, but wait until the nights cool down. The greens that go into the freezer in October are the best.

I grow Russian Red. I've blanched and frozen it, but I'd agree with the posters above - the best is to keep it growing all winter - even here, zone 5, with temps down to the single digits, as long as the soil is moist it's still growing - slowly - and just tastes wonderful.

Protect it from the deer.
