Crops & Varieties: Kohlrabi
Kohlrabi makes a great base for any number of slaws - julienne kohlrabi with apple, add a bit of mayonnaise, lemon juice and apple cider vinegar, or experiment with different combinations.
Add chunks of kohlrabi to stews.
Replace water chestnuts in your stir-fry with kohlrabi.
If greens come attached, separate them from the base right away, leaving an inch of stem attached to the base.
Store greens like other greens, wrapped in a damp paper towel in a perforated plastic or produce bag.
Store “roots” (actually corms, which are stems that grew underground) in refrigerator in perforated plastic or produce bag (with no paper towel).
