If you’ve never eaten Jerusalem artichokes before, this purée will be a perfect introduction. It’s an easy-to-make side dish, that goes great with many things. It goes especially well with smokey flavors.
Jerusalem artichokes get their name from the city of Jerusalem. But why exactly, is a bit of a mystery. Because it has no connection with that city at all. The most likely theory, is that it is a bastardization of the word “girasole articiocco”. This is Italian and means “sunflower artichoke”. Which makes sense, because sunflowers and Jerusalem artichokes are related.
