Jerusalem artichokes should not be confused with regular artichokes. They look like fresh ginger and have a nutty potato flavor to them. If you have leftover fries be sure to eat them within a day or two. Peel the artichokes with a peeler and then carefully slice them, because they are delicate and can fall apart if not handled gently.
Time saver alert: Did you know that if you slice butternut squash really thin you don’t have to peel it?
Jerusalem artichokes (not to be confused with regular artichokes are also called sunchokes). They are similar in consistency to potatoes. They are in the root family but have a nutty taste.They will create a unique flavor and twist to regular mashed potatoes.
If you don’t have some of these ingredients, make it anyways because any kind of beef stew that is cooked for a while is delicious. I like to put eggs (in their shell) into the liquid, the cook amazingly and have the flavor of the stew, and it is always nice to have hard boiled eggs around.
