Sunchokes

Responding to customer requests, we now have in stock “Sunchokes” aka Jerusalem Artichokes. The Sunchoke contains about 10% protein, no oil, and a surprising lack of starch. However, it is rich in the carbohydrate inulin (76%). Recipes for this crisp tuber range from raw to cooking by steaming, roasting and frying. Google “sunchoke recipes” and you’ll see how versatile Helianthus tuberosus is.
