A sunchoke is a member of the sunflower family that is native to North America. Usually called a Jerusalem artichoke and yep, they sorta taste like an artichoke with a sunflower seed flavor thrown in. They are a good substitute for potatoes and diabetics can eat them with rarely any trouble. I use them in place of water chestnuts too.
I’m excited about the new season too. There are only a few shows I watch but this is one of them.
