Curly kale. The winter greens.

The first frost of winter is something that the people of Lower Saxony actually look forward to. Because between the Elbe and Ems rivers, November to March is curly kale season. Kale and pinkel (a sausage made of bacon, pork belly, onions and herbs) is a regional dish of the north, and the leafy greens themselves are often enjoyed on 'kale tours' taken by groups of friends and colleagues.
