Crops & Varieties: Kohlrabi

This is the first big surprise for CSA customers -a strange-shaped, green root vegetable that looks a little like an alien head, but is actually a refreshing, crisp root-type veggie.
 
Kohlrabi growing.

Quick tips
 
Peel thick green skin with a knife - it might be too thick for most vegetable peelers.

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.

Storage
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).
