Sunchoke Chips

After five years of farm shares (here's the first), there aren't many vegetables that are totally new to us. So Enterprise Farm got major super cool points last week for sending us sunchokes.

Sunchokes (also known as Jerusalem artichokes) are the tuber of a kind of sunflower. Some people think they have an artichokey sort of flavor, though I thought ours were more like a slightly extra-tasty potato.

Jack made Epicurious's Fried Sunchoke Chips with Rosemary Salt, and they were pretty much perfect.

(We've had sunchokes before at Journeyman, a lovely little place in Union Square, and if we had more to play with, we'd try to remember what their preparation was like.)
