What is it? Farm Share Dilemma

Why do they grow things? What is it?

Kohlrabi (German turnip) (Brassica oleracea Gongylodes group) is a low, stout cultivar of the cabbage that will grow almost anywhere.  

A Kashmiri household may have this on their dinner or lunch plates three to four times a week.

But how to cook? Tried the turnip route which is mash or roast.  Trimmed the thing, cubed it, slathered in olive, amped up the toaster oven and walked away. Then it burned. Poor forgotten Kohlrabi. Surviving remains, not so hot. Forgot the garlic also. Bet that wouldn't happen in Kashmir.
