    When we were in Portland Oregon two years ago for the International Master Gardener’s Conference, the hotel restaurant had an excellent soup made from Jerusalem artichokes. I can’t say I noticed any gastric distress from it, and I had it at least 3 times.

    Based on the research I did, this is not a plant I’d want to try to grow, though.

    I missed this, because I had just enough knowledge to guess wrong.

    When we lived in Germany, I remember helping some German friends, farmers, harvest these in the fall, to feed to some of their animals. Cows? Pigs? I don’t remember. They also ate them boiled or thinly sliced in salads. I did not like them, so never cooked with them.

    Tomorrow’s question is a hard one, but I learned a lot researching the answer, which has multiple references.
