How to store kohlrabi
The best way to store kohlrabi is to keep it in the refrigerator. To store kohlrabi, it's best to remove the leaves, as they will draw moisture away from the bulb. The bulb should be wrapped in a damp paper towel and placed in a plastic bag or container with a lid. The paper towel will help to keep the bulb fresh and prevent it from drying out. Kohlrabi can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week.
Another way to store kohlrabi is to blanch it first. Blanching is a process of boiling the kohlrabi for 1-2 minutes and then immediately immersing it in an ice water bath to stop the cooking process. After that, the kohlrabi can be packed in airtight containers or bags and kept in the freezer for up to 8 months.
It's worth noting that the texture of kohlrabi will change after freezing, it will be less crisp and more tender, it's great to use it in soups, stews, or gratin.
It's important to check kohlrabi regularly and remove any that show signs of spoilage such as softness, sprouts, or green patches as they can affect the taste and texture of the rest of the kohlrabi.
