Trim Greens with Ease

KaleRemoving the stems from leafy greens like kale and chard is an oddly satisfying task. Here are two methods:

1. Hold the end of the stem in one hand (left image) and run your knife down both sides of the stem (away from you) to shave off the leaves.

2. Pull the leaves together (right image) and grab them with one hand. Then rip out the stem with the other hand.
