Sunchoke and Potatoes

The sunchoke, better known as the Jerusalem artichoke, is neither from Israel, nor is it related to the artichoke. It is the root of the sunflower plant that has been harvested for centuries by the Native Americans. It is delightfully crunchy when eaten raw and may be fried, roasted, boiled or baked.
