when I was a child I ate virtually nothing.
I drank a lot of milk and my father often made me sit at the table till i had eaten the small meal put in front of me!
One of the things I remember getting in kohl rabi - a "nasty" vegetable that I just could not swallow!
Each time I tried, it would come back up again.
So the question is have I ever tasted Kohlrabi...the answer is a resounding YES, but NEVER AGAIN!
Even the thought of it makes me feel ill even though it is probably quite nice and I might like it nowadays that I eat absolutely everything!
But I "aint about to try it" - amazing how psychological can affect food
no kohlrabi for me...

It looks evil, Finy . . . . like it's dressed up as fennel . . . wicked!!

I think it is sad that you had to endure that Finy.

Yes, and I liked it. Whilst staying with relatives in Germany it was served with our evening meals. It was the first time I'd had it and I liked it. Even my 2 girls, 9 and 11, liked it. Of course I've not seen it here but it probably is available somewhere.
Never. I don't think I want to after Finy's experience. My son in law had the same exact experience with rutabaga in his childhood and he will not touch them now. I think it is Swede over here. (??)
by Rice
is your son in law perhaps also European like my parents -they were German?
by Finy
LOL - yes German indeed.
by Rice
ooh how odd -
by Finy
No. I haven't. I haven't seen it at the supermarket either. Bit hard to try if it is no where to be found. Certain green grocers may stock it I suppose.
i see it every now and then, and shudder! Mostly at "better" grocers
by Finy
I have not ever had one or even seen one.
Not sure we even have them in Oz?
yes we do sometimes at better grocers Jonaj
by Finy
nope, never even heard of it. *blush
I have a feeling that I have because I remember peeling one. I don't remember what it was like if I did.
Mum cooked potatoes with every dinner and usually mashed them. I hated them. I would be made to sit and eat mine until they were gone. By then they were cold and hard and would make me gag. I was an honest child but I got the idea that I could reach the rubbish bin if I leant back on my chair- I would put the potato in my mouth then into my hand and into the bin when no one was looking. Problem solved. I don't know how, but I actually like mashed potato now.
annfi - that is SO clever! and made me laugh....
by Finy
Thanks Finy
by annfi
Annfi . . .my mother's mashed potatoes were terrible and I love potato. I don't know what she did but they could have been used as wartime mortars!!! I think maybe mashed potatoes need to rest to relax the starch, perhaps. Butter, cream, salt and pepper . . . my idea of what to add to potatoes. LOL
by Rice
Yes I have tried it many times and just like swede turnips, i like it enough to eat it as part of a meal but I don't love it.
I love every vegetable I can think of but the above mentioned, I just like.
The only vegetable that makes me retch is OKRA
I had okra for the first time a couple of weeks ago and it was dire. Hahahaha. Then I roasted them . . . . whole new ball game. Yummy. No slime, crispy little treats. I am now going to plant some of my own.
by Rice
Yes Rice, I probably haven't given them a fair go and I think I was also put off quite a bit by the description of Okra i.e. being mucilaginous and sticky….made me shudder. Plenty of people I know use them in different recipes and tell me I am crazy not to like them…however if I mention chokos to them (which I like) they shudder.

PS, fran, I found that i really liked their lovely white seeds too. (still haven't planted mine. lol) I received some free cucumber and tomato seeds in the mail the other day so I may yet have a vege garden. Jules would have been so proud.
by Rice
Love it! Eat it in salads all the time in summer as it tastes better raw & it is juicy & crunchy. Yum!
No, I haven't ever eaten it either, nor had I even heard of it, before I read the question!
by Miro
Nope! Maybe one day
