Jerusalem Artichokes (sunchokes) are widely available in supermarkets, its peak period is September through January, but often continues through the early spring. They are not artichokes, but rather a North American Sunflower with an edible starchy, tuberous root. Select sunchokes that are firm and free from mold and wrinkles. Sunchokes vary in color where their shades range from dark brown to light brown in color, similar to ginger. These tubers need be refrigerated, unwashed, in a plastic bag for up to 1 week for successful storage.
Sunchokes (Jerusalem artichoke) make a delicious substitute in recipes that ask for water chestnuts or jicama.
Add sliced sunchokes (Jerusalem artichoke) in marinated vegetable mixtures, or on an appetizer vegetable platter with dips.
