Anyone know what this is?
That, my friends, is an interesting little vegetable called kohlrabi. It looks a bit like an alien but it's really a low calorie, high fiber veggie packed with folic acid, calcium and vitamin A and C and I've got it growing in my garden in mass quantities. Now, I like to peel it and eat it raw with a little salt but my conservative eaters need a little more creativity than that. And since it's so good for them, I'm willing to disguise it a little. Your assignment this week? Don't pass one of these up at your local grocery store or farmers market. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
