Our Fall crop of Kohlrabi is in! The funny-looking veggie that's so delicious! A member of the cabbage family, and both the fruit and the leaves are edible cooked and raw. It has great nutritional value including Vitamins C, B-complex, A and K. Tasting much like broccoli or carrots raw in salads, and the leaves like kale, it can be quite versatile in many dishes. For ways to cook with Kohlrabi, check out these recipes.
Leaf Lettuce is making one last appearance before winter.As we all know this is the most flavorful and nutritious of your lettuce choices. The colorful red leaf lettuce is actually in the daisy family and extremely nutrient dense, providing Vitamins K, A and C to your diet. Vitamin A is excellent for eye health and immune health. Leaf lettuce is also hydrating and a good source of antioxidants. If you're looking for something more than a salad, check out these recipes!
