  • By the way, I refer the Jerusalem artichoke raw like a water chestnut.

  • Mixed with cauliflower and Brussels sprouts then coated with a little olive oil and sprinkled with salt then roasted is a simple delicious way to eat sun-chokes (Jerusalem artichokes)!....Yum!

    You can also lightly saute them by themselves in a little butter until slightly brown....a dash of salt is a must and a sweeter onion like a Valida complements them well...they can be a bit bland!...wish they were more readily available in the stores.

  • Yeh, I am not sure I have ever seen them locally. Maybe Nashville and probably M'boro by now.

  • I have seen them at Publix but its been awhile and rare at that, if I'm not mistaken...

    Their season is October to April...best when harvested after a light frost...

    Common in Europe with over 200 varieties (wow!)
