Does anyone have any good recipes? A couple of years ago while in France I brought home a tiny piece of one (called Topinambor in French). I planted it and this year I have a nice little harvest. By the way, they have nothing to do with Jerusalem and are not related to the artichoke. They do have a taste somewhat similar to an artichoke. The Jerusalem part well, according to my research, evolved by miscommunication. The plant is actually related to the sunflower, girasol in French, over the years girasol became jerusalem. They look similar to ginger but thats as far as that similarity goes. Anyway, I have coated them in olive oil and roasted them and I also eat them raw. Any other suggestions would be welcome! AKA the sunchoke.
