Sunchoke (Jerusalem Artichoke)- What Are They and How Do They Taste

The Jerusalem Artichoke, or better known as the sunchoke, is an interesting-looking root vegetable full of inulin, a carbohydrate that helps promote a healthy intestine due to its probiotic properties. It is a rich source of iron, phosphorous, and Vitamin C.

Sunchokes may look weird and distasteful, but it has the most pleasing taste and texture. When raw, sunchokes have this crisp crunch to it. The refreshing taste followed by a subtle sweetness is similar to the flavors of a water chestnut. When cooked, the sunchoke resembles a cooked potato, both in taste and texture.

I highly recommend you to buy these neat little veggies. My personal preference to their preparation is just washed, peeled, and cut into nice thick pieces. They are like sweet potato chips! Delicious!
