Several Ways to Prepare Kohlrabi

Kohlrabi, you know that funny white and green bulb like food you may have spied at the market or in your CSA box. One blogger described it as "an organic green sputnik." Kohlrabi is a German word referring to the turnip like appearance of this food that is actually a brassica originally bred from wild cabbage. I have tried Kohlrabi when others have prepared it , but I've never tried cooking with it myself. My parents sent me this article from Yankee magazine with two recipes for preparing Kohlrabi. Here is another great site with all kinds of information on the stuff. They both sounded good enough to make me actually want to prepare some. Alas, I may have to wait a little while. Available in early summer, we should be seeing it pop up again after the fall's first frost.

  1. My Hungarian grandmother would slice Kohlrabi into long thin slivers and put it her soups. It was a beautiful touch. I love Kohlrabi and you just do not see it enough now a days. Thanks for the memory.
