I was reading one of my fashion e-mails I receive last week, and they did a feature on kohlrabi, saying that it's the next big thing.
What is kohlrabi?
According to wikipedia.com, kohlrabi (German turnip) is a perennial vegetable, and is a low, stout cultivar of cabbage. Kohlrabi can be eaten raw as well as cooked.
The taste and texture of kohlrabi are similar to those of a broccoli stem or cabbage heart, but milder and sweeter, with a higher ratio of flesh to skin. The young stem in particular can be as crisp and juicy as an apple, although much less sweet.
In doing some research online, I may be behind the times! There seems to have been a proliferation of articles on kohlrabi last year around this time. In any case, I'll let you know if we find the vegetable and cook some up. . .
