Kohl-rabi Cream sauce
Kohl-rabi, or kale turnip, is a wholesome vegetable, and if cooked properly is much liked by all who are fond of cabbage or turnip. It belongs to the kale family, which was about the only vegetable in use among the early Saxons. The stem of the kale turnip swells out above the ground to the size of a large turnip, from which the leaves spring. The bulbous part is used for food. To cook it, trim off all the leaves, peel, cut into quarters, and boil in plenty of boiling salted water twenty minutes, or until tender. Drain and serve with cream sauce or one made as follows: Fry a small piece of bacon with a slice of onion until brown. Remove bacon and onion, add one cup hot water, salt and pepper to taste, and thicken with browned flour.
