Kohlrabi, Purple Vienna

The only place that we have seen these purple kohlrabi on sale is at the farm store in late spring. The name kohlrabi comes from the words “kohl” which means cabbage and “rabi” which means turnip. This vegetable has a turnip shaped edible swollen stem and cabbage-like leaves. We have cooked the leaves by themselves or in soups and eaten the stems raw in salads and cooked in soups. When purchased, the leaves should not be wilted and the stems should be firm. These particular purple kohlrabi already had the leaves removed when we purchased them. The literature says that the purple color is mostly superficial, and that the nutritional value is very much the same as non-purple kohlrabi.
