large white kohlrabi. kale in the bag

The very large, white (green) kohlrabi….. I know, sort of overwhelming. They get BIG! Fortunately they stay nice and crisp and tastey (never pithy). But, what to do with it? Clean it up well. Trim or cut the discoloration off (around where the root was), trim the remnant branches off. Use a large knife, and, carefully (of course), chop it up into chunks. The size you would if you were about to make mashed potatoes. Drop the chunks into a pot of boiling water. Boil them ’til soft enough to mash with your hand mixer (or whatever it is you use to mash your potatoes). They are soooooo good this way – you must try them. So good.

The loose leaf kale in the bag – what to do with it? (Treat it as you would a spinach. It is very mild and tender at this stage and size.) OR: If you have a way to spray or mist the leaves with oil, do it. If not, spread some oil and coat your kale. Lightly sprinkle some salt over top. Lay out flat on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees, only until dry and crisp. Watch them close. They are very tastey, a great snack this way. They’ll be gone fast.

enjoy. eat well.
