Tips and Ideas for Kohlrabi
What is Kohlrabi? (If you’re like me, a LIC CSA member, you had no idea it even existed until last week!)
Kohlrabi is a cross between a cabbage and a turnip. It’s name is German meaning “cabbage turnip.” The part of the plant that is eaten is actually an enlarged stem from which the leaves develop and has a mild flavor similar to a sweet broccoli stem. More information is available on the Kohlrabi tip sheet (courtesy of Just Food).
Kohlrabi is a vegetable that was included in our distribution on July 6th. Luckily for members, our CSA Chefs , Daniel Herskowitz and Christy Robb, put together a great 2-hour demonstration showing how to clean, cut and prepare this odd and excitingly new vegetable.
We did capture some of the demonstration via photography and we have the kohlrabi tip sheet with recipes (from Just Food) that Daniel and Christy gave out to members. Which means even if you missed it, you still have the details!
Also, please stay tuned for future demonstrations because we plan to provide them in video format in the future. Hooray!
