That's how I was introduced to it raw by a dear, dear man who had a cottage next to my parents' cottage and would host cocktail hour every Friday during the summer. He had the most amazing green thumb (and made really good G&Ts! and pickled fish). Sadly, he died too young at 65 of a heart attack.

Kewl looking sputnik-like vegetable. A couple of ideas I encountered (from Serious Eats, etc.):

Kohlrabi slaw w/ bacon & apples

Kohlrabi remoulade

Kohlrabi pancakes

Re the pancakes...

Stephencooks has an interesting recipe for Brussels sprouts pancakes w onion marmalade. (I think orange marmalade would be tasty as well.) You could adapt the recipe using Kohlrabi, or any veggie of choice.

Huh, I didn't know kohlrabi was good cooked! I've only eaten it raw (which I love!). It has kind of a mild radishy flavor. Do people cook radishes too?? If you cut the green skin off the outside of a broccoli stem, the inner white part kind of tastes like kohlrabi too. My mom used to cut up broccoli sticks for us all the time to use up the stems

Depending on the growing conditions, I've rarely had to peel the kohlrabi that we grow. We do pick ours when they are about 2 inches diameter. And yes, people cook radishes--PF posted a roasted radish recipe a couple of weeks ago. I love radish soup. And, I often add radish to stir fries. Here's a radish recipe I keep meaning to try...maybe with the radishes that will be ready late August.

We pull our radishes after 25-30 days and replant. Otherwise, they get woody.

CWS-- The kohlrabi's I have seen at the farmers markets and in the produce sections at whole food/ co-ops this year all have been Huge. I too like them smaller as they seem more tender and I think they get woody with age. So I haven't bought any yet this year, still hoping to find some smaller ones. I was Surprised how early they started appearing at the markets. One must be able to plant them very early. I remember planting them some years ago from seed, but I don't remember how long until we harvested them. I should get one, ( I think they come in 3's ) at the farmer's market this saturday and stop drooling. Kohlrabis to me, are a Summer Treat. I suppose next I'll be seeing them along-side Asparagus in December. Somehow, I still can't wrap my brain around fresh asparagus as a Christmas or Winter vegetable. But then again, I chuckled to myself that I was able to Grill outdoors every month last winter. So, here's to Kohlrabi in July and maybe again after the snow flies.

I don't know how well or how long they store once picked.


Steve-- how did you like the kohlrabi your neighbor gave you the other day?

Kohlrabi goes in early but it only needs 52-60 days. Ours are late because of the drought.

They were good. What I ended up doing was slicing them into disks, then dipped in flour, egg, and panko. I then fried them in oil until they were cooked through. Sort of a fritter thing I guess.

I hadn't seen any recipes like that, so maybe I'm onto something new here.

ISO Kohlrabi Recipe Ideas One of our neighbors gave us some kohlrabi from their garden. I don't have a lot of experience with this vegetable. My mom used to just cube it and steam it. The few times I've made it, I did the same thing. I also tried it one time in a curry, on someone's recommendation. It was okay. Does anyone have a good "off the beaten path" recipe for kohlrabi? Or maybe just some ideas? 3 stars 1 reviews
