Roasted Jerusalem Artichokes (Sunchokes)

I have alien life forms in my kitchen.  They look like this: I think they look like little rats, and taste like mashed potatoes.  Is that a ringing endorsement for you? But seriously, I am super excited every year when these tubers turn up at the farmers’ market: Jerusalem Artichokes (also known as sunchokes).  Interestingly […]
