Ok, so I love Sunchokes, aka Jerusalem Artichokes. But so far, the only thing I have figured out to do with them is roast em with some olive oil, kosher salt, and fresh ground pepper. Don’t get me wrong, this is delicious but I gotta figure out something else to do with these lovely little morsels. The had them on sale at my local grocery store so I bought two bags. It’s funny because whenever I buy them, the checker inevitably asks the following questions: “What the heck are these things?”, “What do they taste like?”, “Where did you find them?”, “What do you do with them?”. Any my response is, “Sunchokes”, “They taste like artichokes but have the texture of a carrot”, “Found them in YOUR produce section”, “I roast them”, respectively. It’s the same thing every time and it’s become kind of a joke. Anyway, if you’ve never had them, you ought to at least try em. I got mine at Harmons. Here’s what they look like:
So if you have any ideas what to do with these, comment me. And then come on over and have some. With a big ole glass of Pinot. Sounds good, eh?
