Bacon Braised Kale

  • 4 thick slices bacon, cut into small pieces
  • 2 bunches of green kale
  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • Kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper

In a large pot, render the bacon over low heat until tender but not quite crispy.  Meanwhile, remove the stems from the kale and roughly chop the leaves into bite size pieces.  When the bacon is done, add the apple cider and bring it to a simmer.  Add the chopped kale, cover and reduce heat to low.  Cook for 10-15 minutes or until the kale is very wilted and tender.  Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
