All About Jerusalem Artichokes

Welcome to the delightful world of Jerusalem artichokes – a little known joy of the vegetable kingdom. These tasty roots are a new addition to the Winter CSA so let us introduce you!

🌻 Despite the name, Jerusalem artichokes (otherwise know as sunchokes) are no distant cousin to the artichoke. They're more like the cool, crunchy cousin of the sunflower family. While they do sport a flower similar to a sunflower, the real magic lies beneath the soil – in the knobby, ginger-like tubers.

🌻 Taste Sensation: Raw, they're crisp and nutty, adding a delightful crunch to salads. Roast them for a caramelized sweetness, or toss them into soups and stews.
