Jerusalem artichokes are a specialty crop sometimes referred to as sunchokes. They taste like a potato and a turnip, starchy, sweet & nutty after the first frost. They are high in potassium and iron, and work with your body to decrease cholesterol & high blood pressure. Simply peel and roast as described here, or combine with lemon and saffron for a creamy vegan soup. These are sold in 1lb increments and are best used within 2 weeks purchasing. Keep in your crisper drawer!
