About Recipe

So I had these jerusalem artichokes sitting in the fridge for about a week, bought on a whim at the market on an empty tummy. I know, I know, don’t shop when you’re hungry but it just happens, you know? Jerusalem Artichokes are funny little things, grossly misnamed because as we all know, they’re neither real artichokes nor are they from Jerusalem! The Jerusalem Artichoke is native to North America and is in fact, a member of the lettuce family that is also related to the sunflower, the latter I’m sure is what gave some clever fella the idea that sunchoke would be a better name for these knobbly tubers! In the US at least, the word sunchoke is becoming more popular in the professional culinary world.
