Can you provide an approximate measurement for "a bunch" of kale?

When you buy Kale it is sold in bunches. That is what is meant by " a bunch of Kale".

A bunch is just a head of kale. Sorry, that word is not so clear :) Kale bunches/heads vary quite a lot in size. We try to find the biggest head we can that looks good at the store. The way to think about this is like you would salad dressing - some people like a lot, some people like a little. For dehydrated kale chips, it's the same thing. If you use more kale in a recipe, you'll just get a lighter taste. If you use less kale, you'll get a stronger taste. Experiment and see what works best for you.

How can one store dehydrated kale chips to keep fresh and crisp?

Actually, we live in Utah, so this isn't a problem for us at the moment. Often, dried foods get drier since the humidity here is so low :) You might try keeping Kale chips in the refrigerator, where humidity is lower. Anyone else have any good ideas for how to keep Kale chips crispy?

We keep them in a screw-top ziplock plastic storage container. They only last about a week in our house so that works to keep them crisp that long.

To store my dehydrated foods I purchased a vacuum sealer with an attachment for sealing mason jars, as well as bags. It keeps most things fresh upwards of a year.

Another tip to try to keep dehydrated goods crisp: put a bit of rice in a muslin sack in the container you're storing the goods in. The rice will absorb the moisture, keeping your chips nice and crisp.

Just made these. First time kale chip maker and first time dehydrator user. My husband and I absolutely love them. I think I over salted them a touch but still... This worked so well. Definitely making these again.

When I have had kale chips gone soft all I've done is pop them back into my dehydrator for an hour or two, works wonders!

a kale plant grows like a tree, keep harvesting the lower branches/leaves it will provide all you can eat all summer I grew 5 plants and either gave it away or blanched and froze for winter soups etc. a bunch is approximately 5 or 6 branches as purchased in supermarket/
