This is funny, really. The last time I tasted kale, it was baby kale.

People, all of my life, have tried to convince me I'd love lamb....if only....

Now this was before I became vegan. So, it wasn't about that. i tried lamb every which way....I. Just. Don't. Like. It.

Same for kale. I. Just. Don't. Like. It.

Spinach, though....bring it on. Love it raw or cooked.

But, it's just funny how people will for some reason get obsessed about forcing you - or trying to convince you - that you will love something that you are telling them, quite honestly and forthrightly, that you just truly don't like.

I don't like kale. I really hate sushi. And yes, I've trie them multiple times in multiple ways. I just don't like them!

But, back to the subject - I do really love cilantro! I love the smell, love the taste. For me, it's a singular pleasure. Gives me great joy for really cheap :-)

Is your kitchen really dark? Are you cutting the stem on an angle?

I have not had any luck with Italian parsley with this method.
Not the plant, just the few sprigs from the grocery store.

Funny how you love spinach raw yet you hate sushi or lamb. Imo, lamb's flavor across the palate of meat flavors is comparable to spinach as oppose to other leafy plants.

I find raw spinach flavor to be extra bitter than most such as the Boston Lettuce or even mustard leaf. Lamb is equally more gamey in flavor than beef but not as much as venison.

As for sushi, I find it hard to believe that someone who likes to eat raw veg to hate sushi because there are tons of veggie sushis. It is nothing more than rice and seaweed rolled with veggies. Unless the sushi in your part of the world just not up to par with traditional authentic sushi.

I will thank you NOW to keep your grubby little hands off my cilantro! I LOVE CILANTRO! I do not understand why folks like you think that shouldn't be allowed.

I hate kale. I'm not running around telling people who like it not to eat it.

I like cabbage (if it is curried or stir fried or turned into slaw) but there is no way broccoli or brussel sprouts would ever be acceptable to me. I mean I will eat them rather than feasting on raw human flesh, but otherwise, no. But that doesn't mean other people aren't allowed to like them. I don't get what your problem is.

My celery lasts "forever" just putting it in the veg bin. If it would last longer than that being wrapped in foil, I wouldn't know, because it's gone before it's bad as it is already.
