Weekend Market Picks June 27 & 28, 2015: What To Do With Kohlrabi?


I think kohlrabi is beautiful, but, honestly, I have no idea what to do with it. I’ve looked up some recipes, but I don’t even know where to start. So if you can point me in the right direction towards your own favorite recipes, I’d love to learn what to do and how to eat kohlrabi. These ones are from the wonderful Roots to River Farm at the Down To Earth Chelsea Farmers Market, (Saturdays on 23rd and 9th).
