    Jerusalem Artichoke





    I have just prepared a Jerusalem Artichoke salad. I took a Jerusalem Artichoke, peeled it, shredded it, put it on a plate and squeezed a lemon over it.

    I have just eaten a Jerusalem Artichoke salad.

    I have no idea why I do these things but I thought I might ask the panel whether this dish can improve and if so, how.

    How did it taste?
    I've never seen this artichoke before - it looks like ginger.

    It is, like ginger, a root. This is less woody.

    Vaguely sweet, and rather like a finely shredded cabbage in texture in that it was damp but still crunchy.

    I usually roast them. Out here, where they are also called sunchokes, you can get them on a pizza.

    You need to cook these so maybe some shredded cheese under the broiler would add a little something to the taste & texture.
    Maybe crumble some bacon.
    it's all new to me - interesting

    Re: Jerusalem Artichoke

    I'm starting out with raw preparations. The idea is a bit of self-medication, Dr Michael Moseley mentioned inulin as a prebiotic feed for intestinal flora earlier this month. Which foods can improve your gut bacteria? - BBC News - and the Jerusalem Artichoke root is 76% inulin.

    Other people have made less favorable comments. From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerusalem_artichoke: The inulin cannot be broken down by the human digestive system but it is metabolized by bacteria in the colon. This can cause flatulence and, in some cases, gastric pain. Gerard's Herbal, printed in 1621, quotes the English planter John Goodyer on Jerusalem artichokes: "which way soever they be dressed and eaten, they stir and cause a filthy loathsome stinking wind within the body, thereby causing the belly to be pained and tormented, and are a meat more fit for swine than men".

    Steaming works, apparently. Boiling makes the stuff mushy.

    Roasting sounds interesting, I'll put the oven on.

    If I vary what I'm trying, I'll add photos to the thread.

    I've read up and gained a liking for gut bacterial fermented foods like cabbage, sauerkraut, and kimchi.

    Never eaten or seen them in the shop.
    Why choose to eat them raw ? A quick Google gives several methods how to cook, why didn't you go that route ? Many things just cannot be eaten raw, some could make you ill.
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    I may mistakenly have heard Dr Moseley say the word raw at some stage.
