Jerusalem artichoke

[English] plural Jerusalem artichokes

The Jerusalem artichoke is a member of the sunflower family and the edible root resembles a knobbly potato. Jerusalem artichokes are excellent roasted in the same way as potatoes, in soups or casseroles. Lemon must be added to the water in which they are placed after peeling, as they discolour rapidly.
