What’s for Dinner?

Just when we’re FINISHED with potatoes and parsnips, a new root seems to be a mainstay in my CSA box line-up. I had to refresh my memory as to what the heck a sun choke was exactly! It’s also known as a Jerusalem artichoke, looks a bit like a knobby ginger root, has a sweet, nutty flavor a bit reminiscent of an artichoke, and can be eaten raw or cooked. It gives the perfect hint of fresh artichokes, which are just around the seasonal bend. It’s a funny-looking “tuber”, and has a nickname I’d rather forget (starts with an “f”; rhymes with artichoke.) So for dinner this week, in addition to some simple yet gourmet homemade pizza, a seafood cioppino feast, a(nother) German celebration, a couple mid-week south-of-the-border sensations, I’ll do some culinary exploration of the sunchoke. I’m hungry already.
