Eric, again; very nice! I love the way you set your area up. I do have a question though. What do you do with Jerusalem Artichokes? If I remember correctly, they are the roots of a bushy herbaceous plant. Similar in appearance to fresh ginger. How is it prepared to eat?

Ted, Thank you.

Jerusalem artichoke (Helianthus tuberosus) is a species of Sunflower.

We prepare the tubers many ways, Roast like a potato. Grate it raw over mixed salad. Slice and dip raw into ranch dressing. Soups. When roasted, creamier texture (not dry) then a potato with a slight sunflower taste.
