Jerusalem Artichoke

Is also known as the Sunchoke. It is not actually an artichoke or even from Jerusalem. The Jerusalem Artichoke is a Native American plant that is a variety of the Sunflower. A Jerusalem Artichoke resembles a potato and is sweet and crunchy like that of a water chestnut. It can be eaten either raw or cooked and tastes delicious. This vegetable is a good source of minerals such as iron, copper, potassium and magnesium as well as thiamin, pantothenic acid, niacin, various B vitamins and riboflavin.
