Jerusalem Artichokes

Jerusalem Artichokes

This plant is a member of the sunflower family. 

Supplied by Aweside Farm from their site that is part of an ecological land cooperative in Sussex where they practice agro-ecological farming. 

The tubers are the roots of the plant and have a sweet nutty flavour. 

If you have the space, I would advise that you plant some of these root tubers so you can enjoy an ample harvest of these wonderful tubers year after year! 

Suggested uses:

Can be eaten raw and sliced thinly, making a great addition to salads. 

When cooked they can become mushy quickly - so steam, boil or saute gently and be careful not to overcook them!
