Jerusalem artichoke tubers.
The Jerusalem Artichoke comes from a tuber in the sunflower family that is native to North America. Neither an artichoke nor from Jerusalem, the Jerusalem Artichoke is also called a sunchoke or sunroot, which is closer to its original Native American name. The tuber has been cultivated as food by Native Americans for hundreds of years.
It resembles ginger root when raw, and has a crisp, crunchy texture of potatoes or water chestnuts. It can be shaved thin and added to salads, roasted or prepared like mashed potatoes.
While Jerusalem Artichokes are harvested in the fall through early spring, Jerusalem Artichoke Powder is available year round. The powder delivers a pleasant, sweet taste and offers a range of applications, both as a sweetener and a thickening agent. It can also be used as an alternative to flour in recipes for pancakes and pasta.
Jerusalem Artichokes are not the usual artichoke in this dip. As a complimentary flavor though Jerusalem Artichoke Powder adds a powerful profile that makes this classic appetizer unique.
