These things grow like crazy. If you can get them from the grocery, you can probably sprout some at home.

I can get them at the grocery store! I'll get some early next spring. If they sprout, I'll plant them along the barn. Maybe they'll choke out the weeds!

About Cynar, here is a most famous Italian TV ad, from 1967.
The actor sitting at the table in the middle of a busy street is Ernesto Calindri. The famous slogan was: "Cynar, contro il logorio della vita modern" (Cynar, against modern life's strain".

It can also make less modern strains, like long evenings spent with in-laws, more pleasant.

I love making soup from these! Jerusalem artichokes, potatoes, shallots, white wine and cream. Mix in food processor. It's divine! I have never noticed any flatulence afterwards.
