Kohlrabi

Kohlrabi

One of Katie’s favorites, but kohlrabi is special because it is early and a constant throughout the growing season. Think of a broccoli stem, but a little sweeter and juicier like a mild apple and you have a kohlrabi. The leaves make it look a little alien, and it always draws a curious comment at the market table. Great raw or cooked like you would a potato. Cut off the leaves and store in the crisper and it will be good for a month. The leaves can be used like kale (p. 10)
