What is Kohlrabi?
Kohlrabi is a member of the cabbage family, and as such, comes with this family's signature sweet-but-peppery flavor profile. We usually eat the bulbous bottom, but the entire kohlrabi plant is actually edible. The skin has the rubbery texture of broccoli stems and can be white, light green, or bright purple. The insides are usually a creamy white.
5 Easy Steps to Prepare Kohlrabi
Kohlrabi can be eaten either raw or cooked. When served raw, it has a super-crisp texture and a mild peppery bite. It's a little like a sweet radish, and you can add olive oil and sprinkle with salt. When cooking it in the oven, the kohlrabi turns sweet and a bit caramelized, making a great side dish for steak, grilled fish, or almost any main course dinner. The kohlrabi is ready to eat when it is tender, and then you can add salt, olive oil and lemon juice.
New item this week: Red & White Potatoes!
We like this variety of smaller potatoes because they are very easy to prepare and cook. To prepare these potatoes, you just need to wash and scrub, and they are good to go. No peeling necessary! You can dice up the potatoes that are a little bit bigger. Our favorite way to cook these potatoes is on the grill in the summer! You can also add kohlrabi and carrots to this grilled side dish.
Small whole potatoes
¼ cup Butter or margarine, melted
Minced garlic cloves/scapes/herbs of your choice
1 tsp Seasoned salt
We hope you have been enjoying your cucumbers so far. This week just about everyone got one cucumber, so we are sorry if you missed this item this week. We promise more are looking good in the garden and will be picked soon!!
