Did You Know?

Kale is an excellent source of vitamin C - just one cup cooked supplies 88.8% of the daily value for vitamin C. Curly kale played an important role in early European food ways, having been a significant crop during the ancient Roman times and a popular vegetable eaten by peasants in the Middle Ages. Kale was brought to the U.S. by English settlers in the 17th century. Source: www.whfoods.com/genpage.php.
