Jerusalem Artichoke

This mysterious, vegetable, also known as sunroot, sunchoke or earth apple, occasionally makes an appearance in our weekly veg bags. In spite of its alien-like looks, the knobbly Jerusalem artichoke can be prepared much like a potato or a parsnip. It is therefore popular in soups and roasts and offers a subtle, yet distinct flabour. Our Jerusalem artichoke recipes below explore some interesting ways of preparing it.
