Sunchoke, better known as Jerusalem Artichoke

Jerusalem artichokes do not derive from the artichoke family nor do they originate from Jerusalem. Instead they are a sunflower tuber, often called a Sunchoke, from North America - all very unusual! This strange vegetable looks like knobbly ginger and tastes remarkably like potato when cooked and chestnuts when raw. A vegetable high in fibre and with fantastic PREBIOTIC qualities, it is a little bit of magic for people who can’t or don’t eat potatoes and yet miss them. Let me explain.
