Kohlrabi - the odd looking deliciously crunchy vegetable

Kohlrabi are one of my new favorite vegetables.  They look crazy, with leaves sticking out of stems located all around the bulb of the vegetable.  You can pull off the leaves, peel the skin off the main part of the kohlrabi and slice, chop, or grate the kohlrabi.  It can be eaten raw - it has a crunch like an apple but isn't sweet - or cooked. It's great in a stir-fry.  There is some great information about kohlrabi linked from the Heartbeet Organics webpage.  (They grow the best vegetables!)

Snack-time Kohlrabi Bites:

Peel and thinly slice the kohlrabi.

Unpeeled kohlrabi - the leaves have been chopped off, but this is what it looks like before peeling (I usually just use a knife to peel away the outer edges).  Tasty snack-time kohlrabi bites are seen behind the kohlrabi. 

Layer rice crackers with the following:

* For homemade hot pepper jelly, my friend Julie and I use fresh hot peppers and red bell peppers to get the naturally "red" jelly.  We just use the simple recipe from We never strain it and it has specks of seeds and pepper throughout.  It's delicious!
