Jerusalem Artichoke Gratin

Jerusalem artichokes also known as Sunchokes, are awkward-looking tubers even bumpier than fresh ginger. The flavor is much like a regular artichoke, though they are not related they are sweeter and a little starchier. They taste a little smokey and retain a crispness when cooked, if not overcooked. They cook very quickly, so be careful not to turn them to mush. The recipe calls for peeling them, though I just scrub them as the tender brown skin is edible. They make a good appetizer, are good raw in salads. NOTE; Since I posted and made this recipe "Uncle Bill" Bill Anatooskin has also made the recipe. He made it for a group of about 20 people,He said they DEVOURED every morsel and looked for more. Many had never eaten Jerusalem Artichokes. He e-mailed me the changes that he made, I made some changes to when making the recipe. So I combined the changes. We hope that you enjoy the artichokes.

This is delicious and I will totally make it again. Husband LOVED it too. I'm just sad I don't have a bigger patch of these in my garden. This year I'll plant way more. Prepping the chokes from digging out to cleaning and peeling was a bit time consuming but worth it. Thank you for posting this.
