Hard to believe it was only 4 weeks ago we planted our first 2 rows of Scarlet Globe in the poly! On Sunday we picked three lots which we duly shared with our neighbor. Also we had our first lettuce, spinach and rocket. All the salads were planted at over the same weekend 4 weeks ago. We started the Kohl Rabi off in pots, but as with the salads were grown on in the polytunnel.
We also had our second lot of Kohl Rabi over the weekend which we turned into delicious Kohl Rabi chips! Not deep fried as you might think but pan fried with a little oil and butter. Simply peel the Kohl Rabi first, then cut them into thin chips and add to the oil and butter mix. Important to keep them on a low heat as they need to soften. Don’t over cook them as you want to retain the flavor and keep some of the crispness of the Kohl Rabi. Finally stir in a little Maggi seasoning if you have it (if not Lea and Perrins works) and salt and pepper to taste.
If you’ve never cooked Kohl Rabi give it a try as it’s superb stuff and has quite a unique taste .
