This the haul of Jerusalem Artichokes we harvested this weekend.
It's from just 2 plants!
Some were missing from the shot,
they were roasted for Saturday nights dinner.
Last spring a friend gave us some
Jerusalem Artichokes to plant.
We did not really know what to do with them,
Peter dug up a bit of ground under the grape vines,
planted them and left them to their own devices.
If they wilted, we gave them a bit of water.
Poor things probably felt a bit neglected watching
Peter and the boys fuss over the rest of the vegie patch.
Little almost 4, calls them "tomatychokes"
Saturday, the first plant was dug up
exposed, was lots of lovely treasure.
We will leave the rest in the ground until they are needed.
I bet they get a little more attention next year!
We have roasted some of them,
they taste a little like a cross between parsnip and a potato,
with a little nutty flavour as well.
Hope you had a nice weekend
