Last year, I ran a popular contest for someone to win a basket of cookies in exchange for a buffalo meat recipe (see Win This Basket entry).
This month, you can win a package of somerville kitchen home-baked Christmas goodies in return for Jerusalem artichoke recipes. For every recipe I end up deciding to use, the sender of the recipe will receive the goodies - shipped anywhere in the world.
What are Jerusalem artichokes? Just read on.
You have the recipe ready? Email to:
Jerusalem artichokes (also known as sunroot, sunchoke, or earth apple) are beautiful looking plants that are part of the sunflowers' family.
In fact, they grow as high as sunflowers and generate similar flowers.
I used some last year (see Palm Sunday Meal) and the peels seem to have survived the compost and popped up in le jardin this year.
Jardin expert advised that it is best to leave them till after the first frost, then dig them out. And, at last, we had our frost...
So in le jardin earth we went and there were tons of them. They were buried deep in the ground and came in all sorts of weird shapes and sizes.
A huge collection was extracted, washed, dried and is now waiting your recipes in the cellar.
Thank you and good luck.
