Thanks for the tips, Cara, Larry.

Yes, Andy, but a picture isn't worth a couple dozen posts ;^)

That's true. You would have had your answer in one post. Where's the fun in that?

I would have had the answer right in the picture, as I would have included the name tag

Have you ever had it, Andy?

No I haven't. It sounds interesting. I may give it a try. SO not one to experiment but as it's a side dish and not the whole meal she may be more willing.

It is very low in carbs, that might be your selling point.

Hmm, I never thought of eating them raw. I'll have to try them again.

Roch, I loved your pic

There are lots of veggies I've never eaten or even seen until the new GE got this large produce section... hmmm... Pacanis' Personal Vegetable Challenge...
Not

Thanks for all the guesses everyone.
I like your idea of picking up a new-to-you vegetable every week or so. I might start doing that. We can start a "vegi of the day" or something similar, thread.

Huh. I don't consider kohlrabi weird. I don't see it in the supermarket often, however, I buy a lot of it in the farmers market during the summer.

My favorite way to eat them is to peel away the woody outside, slice it in 1/4" rounds (if you have a larger head, you can half or quarter it first), steam it, and toss with a little butter and salt. I think they're pretty yummy. The flavor is kind of like a mild cabbage or, as Larry says, a broccoli stem.

Oh! Carnations! LOL! Dad had planted a border of pink carnations for Mom, the seeds were mislabeled and they got a kohlrabi border instead.

I think they taste more like turnip and I will only eat them raw. Julienne in a slaw, they are good.

I bought them once and thought they tasted more like turnip too. IMHO they are kinda overpriced for something that tastes like turnip.
