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?

tesco destalk kale before chopping up

Putrid mess packaged in wasteful plastic

1 stars

A bag full of putrid mess. ½ the bag was a rotten. Complete waste of kale and non-recyclable packaging


3 stars

Cavolo Nero is delicious and an autumnal treat. However, when grown in the garden the best thing to do before eating is slice out the long, thick, chewy stem as it ruins the delicate nature of the dishes you are creating. However, Tesco simply shred the poor leaves and unless you want to spend two hours of your life rummaging through the bag, removing the stalky pieces and plucking the remaining foliage from them, this is a pretty sorry product.

Good for making 'chinese five spice' kale crisps.

5 stars

Makes fantastic kale crisps when spread in a single layer on a baking tray, sprinkled with Tesco chinese five spice and salt and then baked in the oven at gas 6 until nice and crispy. If you love the deep fried chinese 'seaweed' from the local take away have a go at making some of this with Tesco black kale.

No need to be a food snob

5 stars

This tastes delicious - just steamed it. My brother says that it tastes better than his home-grown cavolo nero.

Great veg, spoiled by packaging.

1 stars

Cavolo nero (Black kale) is a wonderful vegetable, but this was completely spoiled by being pre-chopped. It had dried it up and made it necessary to spend 15 minutes removing the small bits of stalk, rather than stripping an entire leaf at a time. Whole leaves would also help them to retain even more goodness. Please could you package them differently and then I'll willingly buy it again.

Really flavoursome but don't cook it too long!

4 stars

Tesco Black Kale is always fresh and really flavoursome but don't cook it too long. It's a 5 star vegetable in our family and would definitely earn the extra star if it wasn't cut in to such small pieces. I love it but prefer the whole leaf product for ease of washing, preparation and serving where available.
