After 44 boxes and close to two years, I’ve finally made peace with the fact that I don’t like all of the vegetables we receive. That’s okay. There are some things that I look at and think “I have no idea what I’m going to do with this.” In some cases, I view it as a challenge to figure out how to use this particular item. And in other instances, I’ve decided it’s better to give the item to the swap box in exchange for something that I do like and can use.

Such was the case this week with the kohlrabi and lettuce/radish bag. Greens and lettuce are my biggest box challenge and it’s something that I am going to make an effort to address next season. But for now, I think the lettuce and radishes would be better off in another shareholder’s home. As for the kohlrabi, I’m at a loss and I knew that I was going to have a busy week with work, so hopefully someone else has a fantastic recipe for kohlrabi and is happy to have the extra!

When I received Kohlrabi in my CSA box (Pleasant Ridge Produce/Richland Center, WI), I didn't know what to do with them. They were too freaky looking to eat. I called them "space creatures". I even had a bad dream about them one night! I found a recipe for cooking kohlrabi but I wasn't overly impressed. My veggie guy told me he likes to peel them and eat them I did. Turns out I really like them that way. They are good with a little dip like carrots and celery.
