Jerusalem Artichokes

Other names: sunchokes

A relative of the sunflower, this vegetable is native to America, not Jerusalem, and has no botanical relation to artichokes. The white flesh is nutty, sweet and crunchy like chestnuts when raw. Baked in their skins, they become more like potatoes with a mild taste of artichoke hearts.

Selection:
Choose firm sunchokes that are not moldy, soft or wrinkled. Some sunchokes will have dark brown skin while others will be light brown in color, like ginger.

Storage:
Refrigerate, unwashed, in a plastic bag for up to 1 week.

Culinary Quote Of The Day

From James Beard...

The secret of good cooking is, first, having a love of it… If you’re
convinced that cooking is drudgery, you’re never going to be good
at it, and you might as well warm up something frozen.
