1.) Wash and dry the kale. Cut the tough stems out of the center. Then tear by hand or cut the kale into about 2-inch chunks.
2.) Place the kale into a large mixing bowl and pour over it the olive oil and sea salt and squeeze the juice from 1/2 of a lemon over top. Massage this all into the kale for about one minute to help it absorb the flavors. Then drizzle about 1 tablespoon raw honey on top of the kale and massage it into the kale for one minute more.
3.) Spread the kale evenly on one or two food dehydrator trays and dehydrate at 118°F (47°C) for about 8 hours until crispy. Or dehydrate at 145°F (62°C) for 1 hour, then lower the temperature down to 118°F (47°C) for 4-5 hours until crispy. This works as well without harming the enzymes because enzymes are not nearly as susceptible to temperature while in the wet state. But as they dry they become more susceptible to heat and the temperature must then be kept at or below 118°F (47°C) to avoid killing the enzymes. Because of the time it takes for these to dry, it works well to make these in the morning before going to work or just before going to sleep at night so they’re ready in the morning.
