(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.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
