Jerusalem artichokes?

Does anyone have recipe ideas for sun chokes? They are coming into season here and abundant (read: my neighbor just brought me a basket)

So far I've mashed em, cubed and roasted them and pickled a few for salads... I could use some inspiration.

Artichokes

Buonsera, Good Afternoon Janet,

I love artichokes ... Here are a couple of Mediterranean suggestions:

1) bake artichokes filled with bread crumbs, either a vegetarian stuffing for example, mushrooms in season or fresh sautéed spinach, pinenuts and garlic ... or stuffed with pancetta or Proscuitto di Parma with bread crumbs and Pinenuts ... Herbs, Evoo ...

2) Sautéed in Evoo with garlic and spinach ... see photo.

Charlie,

Thanks so much for your compliment and feedback.

It is very healthy and quite tasty too, with the pinenuts and garlic & Evoo ...

All my best for a lovely August.
Margi.

Janet,

You can treat them like potatoes, bake, boil, steam, mash, roast. Add them to any dish you would add potatoes to. Also they are great shaved onto a salad.

Cynar (an aperitif- 16.5% ABV) is made from parts of the real artichoke.

Hmm - I think we are discussing two different plants.. not sure these could be reasonably stuffed.

Jerusalem artichoke - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Interesting - I don't know that was a known side effect but now that you mention it....

I think Margi is referring to the globe artichoke , related to the thistle, which is different to Jerusalem artichokes, related to the sunflower which are underground tubers .


The latter are lethal for bad windy pops . Am still traumatised
