Basic cooked jerusalem artichoke

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
Jerusalem artichokes
Lightly salted water
Fresh lemon juice
Salt and pepper

Jerusalem artichoke, also known as sunchoke, is a seasonal vegetable that looks a bit like fresh ginger, and tastes like a cross between potatoes and artichokes. We enjoy it very much in Israel.

To prepare jerusalem artichokes as a side dish, peel and cook in boiling lightly-salted water for ½ to 1 hour, covered, until soft.

Add salt and pepper to taste, and sprinkle with lemon juice.
