I love kohlrabi! It is easy to plant and easy to grow, and it’s versatile as well. You can add it raw in salads, or with dips or you can bake, braise, steam, or mash it. It tastes much like broccoli, and is related to the cabbage plant.
Growing kohlrabi is fun, too.
It’s an early veggie, so we plant it in early March, directly into the ground. It takes about 50-70 days, depending on weather, and we have our harvest in May. We also plant it again in late July for a fall harvest. To store it, you can place it in the fridge, or freeze it by blanching a whole bulb for 3 minutes, then an ice water bath. The greens are delicious, and the whole veggie has a spicy, peppery bite that goes with just about anything.Here’s one of my favorite recipes using kohlrabi.
