Overview

What is a Sunchoke®?

  • Also known as Jerusalem Artichokes, Sunchokes® are actually the edible roots of a special North American sunflower plant. They have a crisp, water chestnut-like texture when eaten raw, or a rich, starchy  texture when cooked and puréed. The flavor is nutty and slightly sweet with a hint of artichoke flavor.

How to Eat

  • Scrub clean, then peel and slice. Enjoy raw or boil and mash for soups and starch-based side dishes.
