What To Do With Jerusalem Artichokes

Found some jerusalem artichokes in my lovely little local greengrocers shop. I have plenty of recipes, etc., and I think I know what I'm going to do with them but thought it would be interesting to know what you do with them.

This is what mine look like but they can be much more knobbly

Curious, too. I've got those on my list of things to feature in a recipe. We call them sun chokes.

Yes, I thought they might have a different name across the pond which is why I included the photo. Looking forward to seeing ideas

I'm thinking of doing s/thing with the sun chokes and the petals of sunflowers...which are edible.

I have never seen them for sale, when I was young we used to dig them from around the foundations of old abandoned farm buildings.

From my hippie daze!

or you could roast them.

They are nice made into a soup (chicken stock based) with cream added.

I guess you know about their flatulent effect!

Love them but can't eat them as they give me unbearable gas and my partner uncontrollable diarrhea

But my favorite prep was roasted or soup

So this is what they look like! I always wondered. Now I know. I always saw them in the produce department, but thought they may be a crippled hand of ginger with arthritic fingers.

Sun chokes are not pretty--right up there with celeriac re: ugly vegetable.
