At the risk of sounding like a big baby, here goes...
I love kale and I know it's really good for you, but I get irrationally stressed over cleaning it, since at least a few leaves are usually covered with aphids. I'm tired of spending so much time looking in every little fold and crevice, and it seems stupid that I get so twitchy just because of some bugs on my food. Have any of you found a faster method for removing the little buggers, than going leaf-by-leaf and picking them off?
My mom once suggested soaking in soapy water, but that didn't work for me. I've also tried just blasting them with the faucet, which doesn't work either, and right now I have a leaf soaking in salt water...still waiting to see the results of that one.
I keep trying to tell myself, "They're just extra protein!", but not working :)
Any input is really, really appreciated!
