Very tasty but an awful lot of woody stalk

3 stars

Very tasty but an awful lot of woody stalk

tastes great - cutting is dire

3 stars

I totally agree with all the other shoppers - PLEASE DONT CROSS CUT IT. Takes SO long to cut the woody stalks out... If you can't strip cut it - then leave it whole..takes less time.

Tesco promote this as Cavolo Nero, it is definitel

1 stars

Tesco promote this as Cavolo Nero, it is definitely not, nothing like it, it is Black Kale.

Don't sell pre-cut Kale

2 stars

Please please please sell the whole leaf Cavolo Nero. As others have said, nutrients are lost in the cutting and it is sooo much easier to prepare if the leaves are left whole and then the stalks are easier to remove, cut up and cooked for longer, if required. I have tried kale, cut in this way, from other supermarkets and it takes for ever to prepare, having to still remove the stalks. I will not be buying this no matter how good it might taste.

Good for you

Spoilt by cutting

1 stars

The leaves are cross cut with the stalk still in place. This means that you either have to eat the tough and nasty stalks or spends ages cutting them out of loads of small slices. Besides, cut foods lose nutrients - even in a oxygen-free bag

Don’t chop it, strip it!

2 stars

Do Tesco ever test these products on ordinary shoppers? Or are they just ‘bright’ ideas dreamt up in an office somewhere by someone who’s never met a kale plant in the wild? I’d buy it more often if it were either left as whole leaves or had all the little bits of stalk removed. As it is, there is no time or effort spared to the consumer which is the reason one buys pre-prepared food after all. Quite the reverse it’s so much harder to have to sort through a pile of chopped bits, looking for tough bits of stalk; unless you do this you are left with inedible and unappetising hard bits of stem on your plate. If you want to offer it prepared, Tesco, please prepare it by stripping out entire stalks leaving the leaves whole and unchopped, or chopping up just the leaves. Either would actually be a time saver, so welcome. Though, as another reviewer notes, by chopping the leaves you are reducing the nutritional value; and chopping also reduces the life of the product because the leaves start to dry and die around the damage to the plant of the cut. I understand why some people welcome the time saving of pre-chopped veg. But please remember that some of us actually prefer to do our own veg prep. Some people chill out after a tough day by hoovering, or dusting I believe, though that’s not my idea of stress reduction. Quite the reverse. But some of us like to zone out as we chop, grate and stir. Leave us some whole leaves, please?
