Curly Kale 100% Dutch
The recipe is so typically Dutch, that it is said to be the national dish. The peasant cabbage is the tastiest when it has been frosty for a night. The cabbage is often harvested after the first night frost, only that day it is eaten.
Kale is traditionally eaten with a pothole of gravy, sausage (farmers sausage or smoked sausage), mustard and fried bacon. Sour additives such as onions, gherkin or vinegar are also used today.
