Jerusalem Artichoke

Jerusalem Artichoke -

The tuber of a species of sunflower, somewhat resembling the potato in general characteristics, but sweetish in flavor and more watery and less nutritive in composition. There are two principal types - one long and with red skin, the other round, knobby and white. They are generally boiled and pickled or eaten with vinegar, but some people enjoy them raw, eating them with salt, like radishes. They make excellent soup. The name "Jerusalem" is a queer twist from the Italian word Girasole, meaning "Sunflower."
