Preparation, uses, and tips
Scrub Jerusalem artichokes just before using, leaving the skins on. Cut them into thick
slices, drop into boiling, salted water, and cook until tender. Toss with butter or olive oil, salt, and pepper. Or cook them with cubes
of butternut squash and yellow onions for a hearty stew.
Jerusalem artichokes are a variety of sunflower.
