The Harvest Notes give some additional ideas for eating kohlrabi, as well as all of the broccoli. Don’t throw away the stems and leaves! You want to peel off the thicker skin, but it’s all edible.
The farmers think we will receive Lettuce, Zucchini, Lavender, Broccoli, Garlic Scapes, Cabbage, Chard, Kohlrabi, and Basil. Several of these, including the garlic scapes and lavender, were discussed in last week’s post. With the heat this week, a cool glass of lavender lemonade sounds wonderful, doesn’t it? Kohlrabi often puzzles people – the bulb (which may be purple or green) can be eaten raw or cooked, the greens are a bit tough so, like the broccoli leaves, best sauteed, possibly with a couple of garlic scapes chopped in, and maybe some of the chard?
