Kohlrabi or Beets

by | Oct 23, 2017 | Market News

In this week’s share you will receive either kohlrabi or beets.

Kohlrabi is a close relative of broccoli; it resembles a root vegetable but actually the edible globe is the modified swollen stem.  The edible leaves jut from the globe portion of the kohlrabi.  It offers generous amounts of vitamins A and C, contains significant amounts of the minerals potassium and calcium, and is high in fiber.

Kohlrabi is delicious steamed.  Cut into 1 inch chunks, steam until you can pierce with a fork. Toss with some butter, salt and pepper to taste.  Makes an excellent side dish. Or simply cut into slices and serve raw on a veggie tray with dip.

Store globe and leaves separately.  The globe will last about a month refrigerated in a plastic bag.  Wrap the leaves in a damp towel or place in a plastic bag; use as soon as possible.

Beets are one of the most colorful, sweet and delicious vegetables to use, both cooked and raw, as well as in your recipes.  They contain generous portions of vitamin C, A, and the carotenes.  Using beet greens will also give you high amounts of vitamin C, calcium, and iron.  Beet greens are best used fresh.  When storing for a short period, wrap them in a damp cloth or in a plastic bag before placing in the refrigerator drawer.  To keep the firmness of beet roots, cut off leaves and stems 1-2 inches above the crown.  Store in a plastic bag and refrigerate in the hydrator drawer.
