With its long stem and beautiful yellow flowers you might mistake this temperate area wild edible for its cousin, the sunflower. Yet, the Jerusalem artichoke is a unique and widespread edible valued for its tubers, plant structures similar to potatoes that are enlarged to store nutrients for the plant to live off during the winter months. The Jerusalem artichoke is neither from Jerusalem nor an artichoke. The plant is actually a North American native, having served as a staple crop for Native Americans. When the plant was sampled by French explorer Samuel de Champlain, he noted that the plant had a distinct artichoke flavor – he brought some with him back to Europe after his journey in 1605, and by the mid-1600’s the Jerusalem artichoke had developed into a common household crop. Although its popularity in recent decades has declined, the Jerusalem artichoke, also known as the sunchoke, is a highly nutritious food source that offers a unique benefit as a source of inulin (not to be confused with insulin). Foragers looking to make a meal out of the plant harvest the tubers from underground, similarly to potatoes. The tubers can be prepared as a potato substitute, can be fermented to make liquor, and is an awesome potato-alternative for diabetics. The Jerusalem artichoke is unique in that it does not contain starch; instead, it contains inulin, a dietary fiber that has been shown to assist in the regulation of blood sugar and in improving intestinal tracks.
