This tasty, versatile tuber is just the nutritious winter veg we’ve been after


The word ‘artichoke’ the Italian word is derived from for sunflower, ‘grasole’

Jerusalem artichoke is a strangely named vegetable, given that it is not grown in Israel (originating, instead, from North America), and bears no relation to its more popular namesake, the globe artichoke. In fact, it is a type of sunflower – growing 10ft tall stems – although only the root is eaten. Closely related to the potato in nutritional value, the Jerusalem artichoke is a great source of potassium, which helps to lower blood pressure, and dietary fibre, which aids normal digestion. Even better, this nutty-tasting tuber has the edge when it comes to energy-boosting iron – 100g contains 3.4g compared to the humble spud, which contains just 0.8mg.
