Jack gives you a taste of another country on his international series. Here is the recipe:
Curly kale with smoked sausages (Dutch / Netherlands)
2 lbs. Kale
2 lbs. potatoes
2 ounces crushed oats or poridge oats
6 large smoked sausages
6 ounces of bacon strips
1 Clean the kale, strip off the stalk and vein together.
2 Chop roughly.
3 Peel and cube the potatoes.
4 Cook the kale and bacon together in a little boiling water, salted if necessary, for 10 minutes.
5 Add the cubed potatoes and the oats.
6 Prick the sausages, and place them on top of the mixture.
7 Cover the pan with a lid, and boil the mixture gently until the kale is tender and the potatoes are soft; this takes about 30 minutes.
8 Remove the sausages and bacon, and mash the potatoes and kale together.
9 Season as required, with salt, pepper, and nutmeg.
10 Replace the sausages and bacon, and serve with plenty of mustard.
