Make Ahead Tips
This recipe can be made completely up to a day ahead: Just let it cool and then refrigerate; right before serving, reheat on the stove.
Freezing is the secret to tender kale. Stuff washed kale in a heavy-duty zip-top bag and freeze it for a few hours or up to a month. Cook it straight out of the freezer. Freezing breaks down its fibers in a way that no amount of cooking can.
Here is a good tip for this recipe, just replace the ham by some jamon iberico de bellota, in case you do not know it this is probably the best ham in the world, it is extremely tasty and healthy (no cholesterol), it comes from a particular breed of swine only found in Spain and Portugal. While it is a bit pricey, the results on the recipe are just amazing. If you want to keep it low budget, buy some Serrano ham which is also great.I always buy my iberico ham online at Buyjamon.com as it is fresh and delivered to your door.BuyJamon.com the market place for iberico ham.
