I had a really good kale year also. I decided to dehydrate it for winter chicken greens. It gets crispy dry enough to smash into fine crumbles (I remove any big stems) and it goes into a big half gallon jar. A LOT of dried kale fits in a half gallon jar. I figure I can just toss a handful with their feed this winter as a boost. Am on the second jarful already.
