Storing kale properly in the refrigerator can keep it fresh and nutrient-rich for up to one week. To properly store kale, the leaves must be completely dry. Any moisture left on the leaves will cause them to quickly rot. The leaves should then be wrapped in a damp paper towel and placed in a plastic bag that is loosely sealed, allowing for air circulation. Once stored in this manner, the kale can be kept in the refrigerator for up to one week. Additionally, when heated, the nutritional value of frozen kale remains very high. To freeze kale, it should first be blanched and then rinsed with cold water, dried off, and placed in a sealed bag or container. Frozen kale can last up to eight months in the freezer.
