Sunchokes

$3.99

Also known as Jerusalem artichokes, sunchokes are not related to the city or artichokes. These tuberous roots look like ginger but are actually from a sunflower species. Their crunchy texture is similar to water chestnuts and their earthy character is a cross between a potato and an artichoke--a little sweet, a little tart, and very filling. Decide for yourself by eating them raw or roasted, with or without the thin skin. Try them puréed as soup, chopped up in a quiche, or pickled for a long lasting snack.

Refrigerate in a breathable bag for up to 2-3 weeks; or keep on counter for up to a week. Like apples, use lemon juice to counter oxidation when sunchokes are exposed to air.
