Looks like I'm going to be planting some in my garden, as they like my northern climate.

If you plant some Jerusalem artichokes/sunchokes I hope you read this first:
They've very easy to grow---- in fact almost TOO easy!
Dedicate a sorta out of the way spot in your garden. The word 'invasive' might be used for them---- but perhaps you can channel that into a plus.
I liked them best served raw. Sometimes I peeled and cubed them and used them as a substitute for water chestnuts in stir fry, thrown in at the last minute.
The only minus is they're lumpy little buggers so peeling them is harder than peeling a potato.
Gophers will enjoy them too.
