It is Friday and Fridays are for fun. Last weekend I bought my first batch of Kohlrabi of the 2021 season at the Saint Paul Farmer’s market. Housing prices are high and the competition among buyers is fierce. In contrast, kohlrabi is easy to buy and is affordable too.
There are a lot of people who don’t understand the vegetable and many who have never tried it. It can be cooked but I mostly eat it raw. I love kohlrabi and when it is in season I eat it almost every day. By the time kohlrabi season is over this August, I think the housing market will be a little kinder to home buyers.
If you have never tried kohlrabi you are missing out. By something weekend. The bulb and the greens are edible. I usually saute the greens and they can be added to any dish that could be improved by adding greens. I dice the bulb and add it to my lunch salad which consists of mostly vegetables and never lettuce.
