Here’s an older blog post I did about Jerusalem Artichokes so if you’re interested in knowing more about them, you can check it out.
I’ve had a heck of a time finding them but I did find some online. It was kind of a hassle as they were supposed to be shipped the first part of March and weren’t. I called and they were going to send them towards the end of March and they didn’t. Last week, I gave up and called to cancel and get my money back. They said “Oh, we shipped them today.” Really? They were very nice and agreed they had taken too long and refunded my money but, surprisingly, the package arrived a few days ago.
The garden was just too wet to plant anything before I left. We’ve had almost 5″ of rain in April, and that is an amazing amount of rain for us.
The Jerusalem Artichokes will have to sit in the fridge til I get back and can get them planted. They’ll be perfectly happy in there.
They are high carb so til our diets are over . . if that ever happens, we’ll just use a few slices in salads. They have some great health benefits once you get past the carb count.
I can save them from year to year . . if I just remember to do it.
