Organic Jerusalem artichokes - knobbly little roots with a sweet, nutty flavour. They’re a doddle for us to grow, and very versatile in your kitchen: Jerusalem artichokes are delicious roasted, make a fantastic creamy soup and are also pretty good simply boiled and buttered. Their season arrives just in time for warming wintry comfort.

Cooking

Sweet, nutty and delicately crunchy, raw artichokes make lovely crudités or additions to salad. You can also roast or boil them like potatoes, then eat as is, as hash, or mashed, or tossed into a hearty salad with a lemony dressing.

For a gloriously silky soup, fry a couple of leeks, add thinly sliced Jerusalem artichokes and stock, then simmer for 20 mins. Blend velvet smooth, season and stir in a little cream.

Storage

In early winter, they’ll keep for several weeks in a cool, damp place. In spring, keep them in the fridge, ideally in a perforated bag, to delay sprouting.

Season

In season through winter and into early spring. Just in time for all those warming wintry stews and soups.

Country of origin

Grown in the United Kingdom.
