Sunchokes, also known as Jerusalem artichokes, are little tubers that resemble ginger root. They have a potato-like texture, but are suitable for low-carb diets and people with wheat allergies. Sunchokes also assist in blood sugar control and are suitable for diabetics. They are high in iron, thiamine, and potassium, and are low in fat.
The inulin in sunchokes can cause flatulence, so it's best to start out with small portions!
Sunchokes are delicious roasted or steamed! They have a slightly nutty, slightly sweet taste.
Sunchokes should be stored in a cool, dry, well-ventilated, dark area (like potatoes).
