5 kilos and counting...

The one vegetable that gets ignored throughout the year is the one plant that yields a crop of over 5 kilos this season!!! I thought that I had yanked them all up last year but obviously missed a few. Friends and family have mainly been eating Jerusalem artichokes this week – lucky things! Must invest in a blender, since you can only eat so many roasted and pan-fried tubers!

I have always wondered about Jerusalem Artichokes, are they easy to grow and cook? Are they tasty?

I have enjoyed reading your blog, not finished yet though

Yes, they are very easy to grow and practically look after themselves. I planted the tubers out in November/December 2003, a few inches below the surface, which have continued to proliferate despite my best efforts.

They are straight forward to cook and are best as soup, roasted or fried.

Ah, they are yummy! Kind of nutty and buttery whilst maintaining their form when cooked.
