KOHLRABI: THE BASICS
Pronounced [kole-RAH-bee]. Also called Cabbage Turnip, German Turnip. Kohlrabi is part of the cabbage family, its cousins are kale, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and turnips. The often-tough outer skins are usually pale green (there are also purple-skinned varieties) and strange tentacles emerge from the top of the "bulb" (actually, it's the plant's swollen stem). The interior white flesh and the kohlrabi greens are edible. Kohlrabi tastes like the mild, sweet broccoli stalks, just wetter and crisper, especially when fresh and young. It's wonderful raw! The kohlrabi growing season is "summer" into "late summer".

I was out visiting our farm share yesterday and saw the kohlrabi in the field. Looking forward to trying some of these!

I love Kohlrabi cooked in salt water, drained, and put in white sauce made of butter, salt and pepper, flour and milk. Delicious!
