Kohlrabi is a rite-of-passage for new CSA members. I think it looks like a space alien but it tastes delicious. I’m a big fan of home fermentation and recently heard that kohlrabi makes a great kraut, so I’m going to give this recipe a try. You could also grate it into salad, or eat sliced with salt and pepper. Just be sure to remove the thick skin and stems.

Spinach – 1 bunch
Napa Cabbage – 1 bunch
Kohlrabi – 1 bunch
Red Boston Lettuce – 1 head
Green Boston Lettuce – 1 head

*The scape is the top of the garlic plant– a delicacy you only get to savor for a few weeks each June, so enjoy! Remove the top head (the bulbous lighter part). The rest is edible. It has a distinct garlic flavor, but it is certainly milder than the cloves. are the top of the garlic plant.
