FMIOTW: Waldspinel Sunchoke (Jerusalem Artichoke)

In the middle, those knobby things 🙂

A blend of familiar flavors; potato and artichoke in sweet, crispy pieces. Being a root vegetable, not an artichoke relative, sunchoke’s skin can be dirty so scrub away! After reading some online advice, I sauteed my sunchokes, skin on, in olive oil, thyme and sea salt. They are crispy, salty and have a subtle flavor all their own. Yum!

I’d imagine that mediterranean flavors like olives and lemons would bring out the flavor of sunchoke…hopefully without overpowering it.
