Two people have spotted kohlrabi for fellow Food Finders reader Ilse Root, who points out that it’s a vegetable popular in German cuisine. It’s good roasted and in dishes such as soups.
Helga Smith and Ann Brown found it at separate Sprouts Farmers Market stores, and Smith pointed out, “This vegetable can also be eaten raw; it’s a wonderful, sweet-tasting healthy snack packed with vitamins C and A and other important minerals.”
For Jim Guynup, who’s looking for reader suggestions for their favorite places to find low-sugar desserts, Brown also recommended Sprouts.
And for Rob Lindley, who’s looking for “cooking” apples such as Rome or McIntosh, for making applesauce, John Bergler reported recently spotting McIntosh apples at Albertsons at 2910 Bicentennial Parkway in Henderson.
