Clearing some of our gardens to do a winter planting, we pulled out some tall plants we were wondering what they were...seems they are Jerusalem Artichokes. Have yet to find anything palatable to do with them.

Those things spread like the weed they are. Even the smallest piece of tuber left in the ground will erupt next spring. Ask me how I know.

Slice them up raw and put them in salads.

My folks planted them, we ate them. Bland, sorta like a cross between water chestnuts and potatoes. Sliced in a stir fry or raw in salads. Easy to grow was main feature.

They also go by the name, Jerusalem [censored]-a-choke. The vegetable is made of a carbohydrate called inulin instead of the tuber's typical starch, and inulin has an Ex-Lax-like effect on the human digestive system—we can't digest it naturally, so our gut bacteria go to town.
