KALE

WATERCOLOR, INK & GOUACHE

I LOVE KALE IN SOUP....OF COURSE I DON'T USE THIS ORNAMENTAL TYPE, but it is edible. I use the kind you can buy in the store that is solid green...you also find it in place of parsley used as a plate decoration in a restaurant.

MY PORTUGUESE FRIENDS MAKE A WONDERFUL KALE AND PORK SOUP.

 

Some people call it Ornamental Cabbage...but this one is Ornamental Kale. Here is an explanation of the difference I copied from Google.

 

Ornamental Cabbage: The plants with smooth leaf margins are considered flowering cabbage.

 

Flowering Kale: Plants with serrated or fringed leaf margins are considered the flowering kales, which are further divided into the "fringed leaved cultivars" (those with ruffled leaves) and the "feather leaved cultivars" (those with more finely serrated leaves).
