    MarthaStewartWanabe's Note:

    This recipe is from the Sept. 16, 2008 edition of the "Living" section of our local newspaper, "The Democrat & Chronicle" (adapted from "In Praise of Pecans by June Jackson" ). I have never tried kohlrabi, but it has been described as a member of the cabbage family but more mild than its broccoli and cauliflower cousins. The article states "pecans and honey accentuate the vegetable's sweet side". I have not cooked this yet but am eager to try it.

      Just fixed this tonight and it was very good. An interesting vegetable dish. Never having cooked kohlrabi before, I peeled it, like the directions said, but my bulbs were so tender, that I don't think I really needed to peel them. They were a beautiful purple and green combo, so I hated to lose the vitamins in all that color. I also used a sour orange instead of a lemon and the result was terrific. Definitely a keeper.

      Very good! I would reduce the lemon juice a little, but otherwise it was quite nice.

      This was super yummy! I didn't follow the measurements exactly because I only had 1 small kohlrabi bulb (converting the recipe would have me use half a tbsp of pecans and such, that didn't make much sense) but just tossed the given ingredients together like the recipe says, and the combination of flavors is just awesome! I'd recommend this to a Kohlrabi Novice anytime!
