The flavor is different, more nutty and sweet in my opinion. When my husband tried it for the first time he was taken aback because he expected it to be like a potato. Once he adjusted, he really enjoyed it. I like the texture. It holds up well in extended cooking in a crockpot. I have added it to roasts like I would a root vegetables. Just a warning, it can cause gas in some people. However, I have not found it to be overly problem causing.
This simple recipe can be adjusted based on the amount of vegetables that you have or need for your family.
Roasted Garlic Jerusalem Artichokes
1 - 2 lbs Jerusalem Artichokes
1 t Garlic salt
1 t dried parsley
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
Scrub all dirt away from the Jerusalem Artichokes. Remove any bad spots. Slice them thinly into scallop slices. Layer them in a greased baking dish.
