Quick Pickling – Kohlrabi and Apple

Last summer, thanks to joining a Farm Cooperative, I discovered quick pickling. I was presented a kohlrabi and wondered what I should do with. My go to for such conundrums is to check out Cooking Light. Low and behold I found a great Quick Pickling recipe that included kohlrabi! There is nothing more delectable than freshly made quick pickled fresh fruits and vegetables, especially during the warmer months. They go with absolutely every meal and can add something special to make each meal interesting, including backyard barbecues and picnics. Pickling is also great for the gut. Although quick pickling is stored for convenience and not for the long term, it still keeps easily in your refrigerator for a couple of weeks.  And keep in mind, the sugar you use is not all absorbed so the carbs per serving are only 5g and counts as a low carb food.
