Sauteed Kale with Dried Plums

My sister Alice gave me some of her dried purple plums when I was visiting Kamloops last week so I wanted to prepare a dish that would include them.  So if you like the taste of sweet and savory this dish is for you.  I made this last night for my friends Debbie and Warren as our green veggie side dish to the Curried Turkey Patties.   This dish is a keeper…..why not try it with any dried fruit you may have in your cupboard….be creative!
