The potato is now the most consumed vegetable in the United States. White potatoes are full of essential nutrients, vitamins and an excellent source of fibre. They are also indicated to contain high-quality protein because of their superior amino acid composition. I didn't know that this good for diabetic patients. :O:O:O:OAnyone know anything about them? Have you seen them in any seed catalogs? Suppose to be a white potato that a diabetic can have-in moderation. Which beats not at all.
Sunchokes can be eaten raw or steamed. Boiled, they become mush-according what I read. I ate them raw.It pays to pay attention to the horticulturalists. Developing something new and different is how some of them make a living. After there's something to put out there, often it depends on the whims of the consumers as to its success.
Sometimes, it's as simple as a name that turns on or off interest. How could a name have more appeal than "Charisma?"
I had sunchokes at two homes. At first, I thought that I really had something. Didn't like them cooked (or, didn't know how to cook them) but I liked them raw. They were like nuts!
Unfortunately, I over-indulged and that resulted in stomach upsets. I was more careful but maybe too cautious with them after that. At a new home, they were growing wild in the neighbor's garden. I was invited to take as many as I wanted. No way could I make any use out of more than just a few plants.
how about "sunchokes" as an alternative name to "Jerusalem artichokes?" nobody is ever gonna popularize those things!
They say consuming Jerusalem artichokes on a regular basis can help them maintain healthy blood sugar levels. there are a lot of "Anti Diabetes" fruits and veggies out there... Better try them all!!Never heard of it. What about Jerusalem artichokes? I think I remember that same thing said about them. They are good raw or cooked.
