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.

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.

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).
