So, what is jerusalem artichokes?

Jerusalem artichokes, also known as sunchoke or topinambur, are root vegetables that are native to North America. They have a knobby, irregular shape with a thin, brown skin and a creamy white flesh. The taste of Jerusalem artichokes is mildly sweet and nutty, with a crunchy texture that is similar to water chestnuts. They are a good source of dietary fiber, vitamin C, potassium, and iron. These versatile vegetables can be cooked in a variety of ways, such as roasted, sautéed, mashed, or pureed, and can be used as a flavorful substitute for potatoes or other starchy vegetables in many recipes.
