    In class this week our consultant asked us all to try a vegetable we had never tried before and I chose jerusalem artichokes and I have to say they are yum! I made a jerusalem artichoke soup for lunch and it was so lovely, creamy with a slight nutty taste. We should all try something we never have before, there are so many great discoveries out there!!!

    A lady at my group bought a load in when they were featured in the mag a while back... I had them on a roast and they were absolutely delicious! :drool: x

    In the spirit of trying something new, I have bought asian pears this week. I tried one earlier and didn't like it. It wasn't sweet like a normal pear (I expected the odd texture). Does anyone know if they sweeten up if they are left to ripen for longer? Sorry to add this question on OP!!

    You can have jerusalem artichokes raw in a salad as well. Slice them very thinly - they are lovely and crunchy. Similar to water chestnuts.

    I have never tried Jerusalem or Globe artichokes ever....I think they must be the only veggies that I haven't tried.

    Have just made the soup from the link you posted Circes thankyou. Didn't have any chives though and used mustard powder instead of horseradish and natural yoghurt instead of cream!
    Tastes nice, very different! and like others have said nutty. Bit of a faff peeling the artichokes as well would do it again but not very often don't think.
