My friend at work with the garden full of crazy and unusual vegetables (eg spaghetti squash
) has given me some Jerusalem artichoke tubers to eat and to grow. Apparently they go quite crazy in summer, so I decided to plant them outside the garden fence with the arrowroot (which we should also eat), so that they can provide shade in summer.
|This is what the tubers look like, they were difficult to peel....|
We ate the artichokes sliced thinly and fried in butter.....
|the flesh is white and crispy, with a mild taste|
|although it did end up mixed into the gravy with left over roast beef|
The passed the taste test, Farmer Pete said they were "quite nice", so now all that remains is to see if they will grow in my garden :)
Have you grown Jeruselum artichokes? Or anything else unusual?
|I forgot to take a photo before I piled the dirt back over, |
but this is where I planted them...next to the arrowroot.
