Talk about a fun week of tasty things you don’t see everyday! I love that there were more sunflower shoots — I can just eat them straight out of the box. BUT, I was really looking forward to the kohlrabi this week. Mmmmmm. This is a truly unique thing. I remember having it a few years ago during the last CSA round but I don’t see it at the store very often. (And, who knows how far it traveled to get there??)
Aren’t the little French breakfast radishes pretty??
Now, on to this kohlrabi matter … last time, I just ate the root, sort of as shown below. Trim it up and it’s like a radish-apple-green flavor. You can cook them if you want but I literally just ate it straight up like nothing. Yum-O-fresh-O.
I did notice that there were a TON of greens on the top and discovered (after quick Google) that you can eat those too. Sooooo, I saved them for recipe experiment later.
Extra! Extra! How about a better look at this luscious bread we have been getting every week? It is wonderful. Stone ground wheat by The Bread Lady.
And, in case I have not said it enough … these sunflower shoots are the bomb-diggity.
