    I just pulled up 20 pounds of sunchokes from one plant. A knobby tubers look a lot like ginger root is in the sunflower family. Its nutty in flavor and has a nice crunch No need to peel but does need a very good scrubbing with a stiff brush. Sunchokes also contain vitamin C, phosphorus and potassium and are a very good source of iron. This tuber is very rich in inulin, a carbohydrate linked with good intestinal health due to its prebiotic (bacteria promoting) properties. These benefits come at a healthy price; the food can have a potent wind-producing effect. Inulin a type of carbohydrate that is a derivative of fructose. We don’t have the digestive enzymes for this, and foods that we can’t digest cause gas. Which is why the seeds play a role in this recipe. They are in for flavor as well as helping with the bloating and gas. It's volatile oils reacts efficiently in treating the gastro-intestinal tract. The main properties of the herb make it an effective stimulant of gastric secretion, it regulates stomach functions; it has anti-inflammatory properties for the intestines; it is a gastric and intestinal antiseptic and diuretic. The seeds help in stimulating food appetite and digestion, As it does your breath good!

    The ultimate French comfort food! I adore this dish. Full of flavor. Cassoulet is usually served with confit of duck, bone in (I use roasted duck removing the meat and break into bite size pieces and use the bones for stock) and many type of meats can be used. I did this version for a large party with other foods being served. In this recipe the pieces of meat is easier to serve and everyone get a bit of both. No handling of bones so no messy hands while eating.:) Butter can be used in place of the rendered duck fat. Can be frozen for up to 3 months. Just freeze before place crumbs on. Defrost and heat. Top with crumbs and continue as directed below. Canned beans (about 6-8 cans) can be used for less cook time or they will mush out so watch carefully. I like the dry beans and the longer cooking time for a more richer cassoulet.

    Recipe #481805

    Preserve summer fresh picked beans, scented with citrus flavored herbs, yes you can sub organic lemon zest for herbs or use both as I did. This recipe is "raw packed" because we don't cook the beans before packing them into the jars. Fresh lemongrass would be a great addition to these. Just slice a piece to fit into each jar. Just give it a whack to release it's oils.
