Just a thought from experience. Saving the little ones for seed will stunt your future crop sizes. Keep the biggest for seed and eat the little ones.
So? How did they taste?
Yummo! You made me hungry. Now I am going to cook dinner, wish I had some of those 🙂
Really enjoying your videos, your life is so different from mine here across the Pond from you. Did you know if you cook Jerusalem Artichokes with winter savoury herb it …erm …..helps with the wind!
I am so inspired by these videos, I wish I could motivate my husband to want to go off grid. It is too intimidating to him. So, we are living vicariously through you guys….lol!
Is your stove propane?
I was extremely excited when I found some of these at the grocery and planted them around my mailbox. Seemed like a no brainer. From the small amount I planted I got a 5 gallon bucket full of harvest. However, when we ate them, both my partner and I had horrible gastro distress. A little research and we found that almost 50% of people don’t digest them very well. It was so bad neither one of us were willing to try again. Not something for a potluck. Sure hope your experience was better than ours.
How was it? What’d you think?
Do they taste like potatoes?
Where’s the soup?
Hi, didn’t you have another video on Jerusalem artichokes? I wanted to forward it to my friends, but I can’t find it. Maybe I’m mistaken?
JORDSKOKK we call them in norway, and they grow wild some places here. Use them for stew,soup and they’re great to dry og make a mash with them and carrot.
Ugggg I was hoping to see the end product. Oh well.
I was hoping to see the soup completed.
Yeah I grew them, and frost does not hurt them and they are sort of small and lumpy and a little hard to peel and taste a little stronger than a potato. Pretty little sunflower like flowers. But I’d rather have a potato except maybe once a month I’d prefer sunchokes. Put them on the side of the garden. In a patch where they can not take over. Sunchokes would be a good survival backup food if potatoes utterly failed which could happen. I advocate having 2 or three ways you grow critical foods like field, beds, potted in tubs or whiskey 1/2 barrels, and irrigated from a well or cistern etc. For potatoes,onions,tomatoes, squash, beets, turnips or cabbage or broccoli, and spinach or romaine. Also have a dozen or so dwarf or semidwarf fruit trees that ripen throughout the year and several kinds of livestock in different sheds due to predator danger .a dozen general purpose good mothering breed of chickens. A group of ducks. A couple of registered milk goats and a billy. Cross fence homestead into several pastures, a half acre garden with both field and beds
, an orchard with berries and grapes on the fence and a house lawn and barn area fenced to allow animals to graze or pair of purebred dogs to have a run. Sell. and show the pups ..choose the breed well and you will make money on them. Cut wood and have a year’s of wood ahead for a cold winter or to sell. And try to have several cash flows for gasoline, taxes, medical, and other things you have to buy with money.
O yeah! And don’t forget to enjoy your sunchokes if you have any spare time!
ive never eatin them and am diying to know what they taste like. please inbox me and let me know. love your vids. Rodney
We grow them, but haven’t tried them yet. Be forewarned, they have high amts of inulin which can give you a bad case of gas! Roasted or boiled like potatoes should be ok, says my Chef brother 🙂
I am going to put them today in the oven together with walnuts. Sounds like a perfect combination for me. Next time I will make a soup with them. Much love. xx
