I have Jerusalem Artichokes growing in my back yard. Anyone have some really good recipes using them? They have a very mild flavor, and are not so digestible when raw. I know they're good for diabetics, but I don't have diabetes, fortunately. I gave some away last fall when they were ready, but they grow like weeds. Not even the rabbits can eat all of them.

I have been growing Jerusalem artichoke for years, I to have trouble finding recipes; I have used several from globe artichokes and they turnout quite well.
Here are a couple of my favorites. Another thing I do is
I use Google alert.
May be peeled and sliced raw in salads, or on relish trays with dips; or made into "Saratoga Chips" (fried chips), scalloped, mashed or:
1. Wash 1 1/2 pounds Jerusalem artichokes.
2. Steam, or drop into boiling water.
3. To prevent discoloration, add 1 teaspoon mild vinegar or white wine. Cook covered until tender only. If cooked beyond this point, they will become tough again. Test with a fork after 15 minutes.
4. Drain. Rub off the peel.
5. Melt 2 to 3 tablespoons butter. Add 2 drops hot pepper sauce and 2 tablespoons chopped parsley.
6. Pour these ingredients over the artichokes; or cream them; or cut into halves and pressure cook for 10 minute at 15 pounds.
