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.

    Hello Barb; I now have made this recipe 3 times and each time it gets better. I added several more items to it: granulated garlic powder, coarse black pepper, dried dill weed (the latest addition) finely chopped onions. Your recipe really got me anxious to make. I made it for a function and it went over so big that some were using a spatula to clean up any bits and pieces left in the casserole dish. Thank you so much for your original posting. Made some again last nite. I have quite a large patch of Jerusalem Artichokes and they are so good. Dig them out as I need. Thanks so very much. "Uncle Bill"
