Preparing and Chopping Kohlrabi
When growing kohlrabi, it is important to harvest it before it gets too big. If it gets too big, the kohlrabi will be woody and difficult to chew. To prepare the kohlrabi for preserving, cut off the root and leaves. Set the leaves aside since those can also be preserved. The outer skin of the kohlrabi bulb is thick so peeling it like a potato is not sufficient to remove the tough outer skin. Using a sharp knife, cut about 1/4″ off the outside of the kohlrabi.
