Sun choke, also known as sunflower choke or Jerusalem artichoke, has a mild nutty flavor. Although not related to artichoke, the flavor is similar to that of artichoke heart. The sunflower root is available October through July, and happens to be one of my favorites raw in salads, roasted with meat, or boiled in stews – or with potatoes for mashed potatoes. Although native to North America, it became popular in French cookery in the 17th century.
