1977 not 1976 (which was Jura and viv richards and driving on the lawn)

you will learn about oysters but not for another 3 years if I am anything to go by

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL.
How about marinading him in Listerine for a week or so and then teasing the fibers out with a carding comb and spinning them by hand into some nice homemade organic floss?
Otherwise I'd try the mars bar/deep frying route.
(Oh and I'm with you regarding oysters :D)

I find the Dragon Fruit also slots quite neatly into the 'meh' category of culinary flavours. I do hope whatever you end up doing at least produces some sort of taste. Having spent exceedingly large amounts of time extensively researching about it (ok, about 35 seconds on Google), I discovered this:

It seems to be the case that Kohlrabi is mainly used to "bulk up meals and soak up flavours".

Rather like a taste sponge, if you will.

Good luck.

slice reeeeeeaallly thinly, dip in beaten egg mixed with a little salt and pepper, then breadcrumbs and grated cheese, fry.
This turns it into a vehicle for the breadcrumbs and grated cheese, and you can't taste it. Yummy.

Put it in your compost heap/box/wormery. [Cut it up first if you can be bothered] You will stop it mouldering in the fridge, feel worthy and it will help you to grow veg that you DO like.
Hurry up and love oysters- try doing Alan's Trick; alternate raw and fried. You will soon get it. And eat as many as you can afford before you develop an allergy -one of my saddest moments - so many missed opportunities, given that your great aunt lived near West Mersea.
Meh. Ultimate meh, according to Great-aunt Fanny was
jelly: "you get more taste by sticking your tongue out of the window on a foggy day"

You could probably chance(llor)your arm (s) and use one - or more - for practice in the nets. Might not last long but satisfying. Not so much mashed as smashed.....................!

Alternatively unless you belong to LACV (League Against Cruelty to Vegetables)then you could grate equal quantities of celeriac and then you could revile both veggies simultaneously.

There must be a nutritionist out there who could find some vitamin or at the very least colonic friendly fibre to commend it. Maybe sprinkle some on your Special K. Now there's thought to get you salivating on arising of a morning.

Its a thought. Maybe a cardigan?

Never a good sign when an ingredients main role is to soak up flavours. Id like to do that myself, thanks.

Its a possibility I havent explored, mostly thanks to my utter inability to slice anything thinly (already explored in another blog post here), but you give yourself away at the end: you cant taste it. Yummy. I think this reinforces the point I was trying to make...

This could end up being the winner, but I must spring to the defence of celeriac. Great roasted (especially in goose fat), which kohlrabi isnt; and very good when added to potato mash.

It's not its fault, it's the way it is sold here in Britain - as if it was a turnip or a swede or any of the other beloved eternal keepers. It is meant to be eaten very fresh, sold with long stems and very delicate fresh leaves. THEN it tastes fresh and spring-like and rather nice. The way it is sold here I agree, it's pointless.

Will have to source the baby ones. Or grow my own...

Beware of too much revelation about your early life. I once lost a girlfriend who thought I was a wimp because I couldn't or wouldn't stomach the yoghourt my mother tried to feed me when I was 10.
I hope you told Tessa about the Grape Nuts and hard-boiled eggs interlude in your life before you went public.

The Flame-Haired Temptress (as she is known in these parts) knew many, much worse, things before wed even met. But that is yet another story...
