Kohlrabi


I am growing Kohlrabi in my garden right now. If you have never met this member of the turnip family, here is your introduction.

The bulb of Kohlrabi has a mild, sweet flavor and does well steamed, stir-fried, or floating in soups and stews, but all parts of this veggie are edible. When buying or picking from your garden look for small bulbs that are heavy for their size, firm, and with deep green leaves.

Kohlrabi is high in Vitamin C and potassium. Obviously eating any vegtable right away is best for vitamin content, but these guys do well in the fridge for about four days.

My Kohlrabi are getting big. I better steam them up and mash them with some butter and salt ASAP!
