What in the world is a Jerusalem Artichoke? Have you ever seen those small sunflowers (see photo) growing wild along the road? Well, those are SunRoot Flowers. Their tuber/root is the Jerusalem Artichoke.
A Jerusalem Artichoke is not an artichoke and has nothing to do with Jerusalem. So why the name? No one really seems to know. They are a root vegetable that can be plentiful in various desert regions. They can be used like a potato but their taste is sweeter and nutty. Make sure when purchasing these that they are firm and not moldy. The vegetable is high in Iron.
Try out this recipe for roasted Jerusalem artichokes. Feel free to add in additional vegetables, like squash, mushrooms, onions, peppers, etc.
