with one comment

This vegetable has always been popular in Germanic countries and is widely used in parts of Asia. Now it seems to be gaining popularity it other parts of the world. A member of the brassica family, kohlrabi tastes like cabbage heart, but is milder and sweeter with a crisp texture similar to apple. This kohlrabi and apple salad is excellent with pork.
