HOW TO EAT THE STRANGEST FARMER’S MARKET VEGES – KOHLRABI

Look for: This large, green-leafed vegetable should have a swollen round stem about the size of a baseball, explains Emily Jackle, co-owner of Mile Creek Farm in Dayton, OH. (Any larger and it can be too woody and pithy, but there are varieties that are meant to grow big and are still tender and not pithy, so ask the farmer which variety he’s selling.)

Tastes: Similar to cabbage or broccoli stem but sweeter and juicier

Use it: The leaves and stem can both be consumed. The leaves can be used in place of any recipe calling for raw or roasted kale or collards, and the stem is delicious raw—simply peel away the tough outer skin and slice. “Around here, we eat kohlrabi like apples,” Jackle says.
