It’s Sunday afternoon and I am planning a trip to the grocery. Before I head out, I always check through the refrigerator and take some time to clean out those items that have gone past. I want to make sure I have room and don’t over buy things that we don’t need.
Weeks ago now, I saw Jerusalem artichokes in my local market. I have never had these and, always up for a culinary challenge and something new, I bought about a half pound.

Have you had Jerusalem artichokes? I was googling around to figure out what to do with these and I have come to 2 options… first…I could give a go at this beautiful recipe that I found over at Cookbook Catchall for Jerusalem artichoke soup.

or, second… according to the Johnny’s Select Seed Catalog, these will keep all winter in the crisper (where they have been for weeks already) and then this spring I can plant them and later this summer, I will have this ….

Hmmm…I can’t decide now, perhaps I will see if there are more at the market so that I can have my soup and flowers too.
