  • [Intro music]
  • Kale is probably the most hated leafy green on the planet
  • but it's not just because it's become a symbol of hipster-ism
  • It's because out of all of the leafy greens, kale is the most smug.
  • That's why step one when making kale chips, is to humble your kale.
  • Hey, look at me, you're not better than anybody. OK?
  • See this? It's called Romaine.
  • It comes from Rome. Where do you come from? Nowhere. That's where.
  • It's got a high heat tolerance. People use this to make open-faced tuna sandwiches.
  • People don't use you to make open-faced anything because your spine's too thick and nobody wants to eat it.
  • Think about that.
  • See this?
  • It's called Arugula
  • You get more flavor from taking one look at arugula than you do from eating your entire body, K?
  • Don't forget that.
  • See this? It's called red leaf lettuce. The leaves have red in them. Do you have any red in you? No, you don't, 'cause you're boring
  • Oh, look at this, it's a bag of mixed greens. Everyone's invited to the party except you. Why? Because you have the texture of rubber, that's why.
  • Also, you're not a lettuce, you're a cruciferous vegetable. You'll never be a lettuce.
  • Don't forget that.
  • See this?
  • It's called iceberg lettuce [sigh]. You're actually better than iceberg lettuce, I can't lie about that.
  • It's a flavorless textured ball.
  • The ancestors of the people who died in the Titanic have more respect for actual icebergs than they do for iceberg lettuce.
  • That's how bad it is. It's basically crispy water.
  • [Sigh] So you got that going for you.
  • But at least it's named after something cool. It's not named after something that rhymes with hail which falls from the sky and hurts people every year so..
  • Don't forget that.
  • So now you're gonna wanna bail the kale out of the pail that you got on sale
  • Then check it for nails and then pull off its tail while muffling its wail and inspect it to make sure it doesn't contain snails
  • And that it's not too frail. And then use it to check your mail and rub it on the rails with a banana for scale.
  • Then do a criminal background check to make sure it's never been in the prison system because you don't need that kind of negative energy when you're making kale chips
  • Now you wanna wash the kale but make sure you dry it so the water doesn't interfere with the cooking
  • You can give it a vigorous shake or hang it from the cupboard
  • Or hold it outside in the rain so that the raindrops cancel out the tap drops
  • Or use a hair flattener.
  • Or a hair dryer
  • Or put it in the microwave for 0.5 seconds
  • Or tuck it in for a good night's rest
  • Or warm it by the fire
  • Or just become a human salad spinner
  • Oh, God, I feel sick.
  • Now that the kale isn't so high on itself, you can go ahead and tear off some big pieces
  • Take a bowl
  • Put in a handful of kale pieces. Better enough to cover an onion pan.
  • Put in a drizzle of olive oil
  • Bit of salt
  • And mix that up really good.
  • Take a pan
  • With some parchment paper.
  • Spread them out in a single layer
  • Onion's on 350
  • And we'll put those in for about ten minutes
  • Don't forget to set a timer on your phone.
  • If you wanna get a little more flavorful than that..
  • Take some olive oil
  • And some dijon
  • Mix it together
  • Take another handful of kale and get it covered
  • Add a little salt
  • Now take a pan
  • And some parchment paper
  • And spread your kale out in a single layer
  • Onion's on tree fiddy
  • And we'll put that in for about ten minutes.
  • If you wanna take a sharp left turn to Flavortown
  • Take some ginger
  • Pour in some olive oil
  • Grate the ginger into that
  • Now add in a little bit of honey
  • Throw in a handful of kale
  • Mix the honey ginger in there
  • And then coat that the F up
  • Add in a little salt
  • There's a lot of folds in kale. If you were to unfold one kale leaf, it could cover a whole football field
  • If that football field was approximately the size of that kale leaf
  • You wanna take a pan with a piece of parchment paper
  • Spread that kale out in a single layer
  • Ungo's on three fungo
  • Put that in here for about ten minutes
  • Now if you wanna take a sharp right turn into Spice Village
  • Take some olive oil
  • Add in some cumin
  • And then you decide if you wanna put honey or something sweet in here
  • If you're not sure if you should, ask yourself
  • Do I like sweet things or do I only like round things?
  • You wanna coat it nice and evenly
  • Now for this one, you wanna take a pan
  • A single piece of parchment paper
  • You wanna spread that on in one layer
  • Onion's on three funyun
  • We're just gonna put these ones inside for about.. Ten minutes
  • Okay, so our first batch of kale chips is done here
  • Olive oil and salt kale chips are really good
  • Mustard kale chips are.. A little over done
  • Now we've got the.. Sweet and gingery ones
  • Whoa, look at this
  • Ventured into the danger zone here but pulled it out in the nick of time
  • [crunches]
  • Damn these are the best and it's not just 'cause of my sugar addiction
  • [whispers] Yes it is
  • You can't make kale chips if you're the kind of person that'll just get distracted b-
  • Oh.. Duct tape I love this stuff
  • And finally we've got our cumin spiced kale chips
  • Just kale chip perfection raining down on us
  • [Crunches] Mmm
  • No one wants to be that jackass that shows up to a party with kale chips
  • But also you probably wanna bring your kale chips to a party and show everyone how good they are
  • [Sigh] So
  • The way you solve this is
  • Take some of that parchment paper
  • Tape it together
  • Don't make the mistake of thinking you can use masking tape
  • I listened to someone who recommended masking tape on parchment paper and uh
  • It didn't stick at all and so I cut her out of my life
  • [Ripping]
  • And then decide what you're gonna name your kale chips
  • Frumpty Clumpty Kale Chips
  • Blays Paleo Crisps
  • We got Cool Branch Horriblos
  • Cruciferous Belligerence
  • We got Sour Dreaming Bunyan Flavored Kale Chips
  • And.. Taclitos
  • And the final step is to post on Instagram about how you made kale chips and how kale chips are the best
  • And how they saved your life and how they're so good for your kids
  • And how you'll never eat potato chips again and only horrible people eat potato chips
  • And basically potato chips can suck your
