As I mentioned in the previous post, I want to provide some recipe links for the more unusual vegetables that are showing up in this week's share. Jerusalem Artichokes also known as a sunchokes, are a great flavor for this time of year--earthy, nutty, and sweet--delicious. These little tubers are not only delicious they are good for you, the only draw back is that they can cause gas. Read more by clicking the links below:
-A posting I put up last season about Sunchokes (go phillies!!!).
-Two great intros to Sunchokes from Culinate All Choked Up and Deborah Madison's musings on Sunchokes
-My favorite good food advocate and celebrity chef Jami Oliver's Sauteed Jerusalem Artchoke recipe
-A chicken and sunchoke recipe that looks amazing--to be honest I have never tried pairing chicken with sunchokes--sounds delicious
Sunchokes are also great eaten raw, enjoy.
