The local fireplace shop has it, but you can get it from Amazon.
$9.99 at Tractor Supply. That two pounds lasts a season plus.

I just throw a scoop on hot coals once a week(twice the first time) and then burn a hot fire.

I got the chick with the weak neck to take a good amount of that gro gel, and the next time I checked in on her she was perked right back up! All three chicks are doing beautifully!

You could try one of those strings of lights like Mike has used for his brooder or Sally and Mike were talking about for the Serma.
There are also heated pet beds that have had type thing that you can pull out and microwave. I use one to keep waterfall all day out in one of my small coops. Ultimately, you could sew a small bag and put dry beans in it and microwave them. It won't hold as much heat for as long but it is cheap.

Pensmaster has used the light strings, I never have.

I wonder if my goats would like it?


I'm going to look in by Vegetable Literacy cookbook (Deborah Madison)... BRB

OK, so...

 

Suggestion is to "store" in the ground until needed.

 

Roast, them, sauce/fry in oil or butter, make into a bisque, etc. Warning that they don't always cook evenly.

 

Recipes include:

 

Sunchoke bisque with pumpkin seed oil and sunflower sprouts (basically a bisque with potatoes, J. artichokes, cream and chicken broth, plus spices/garnishes)

Sautéed Jerusalem artichoke with rosemary and smoked salt (just sliced and sautéed in a skillet)

Braised Jerusalem artichokes with mushrooms and tarragon (a braise) 

 

Now I want to grow these next year!!!! :drool

I'll have to have another round of talks with them then.
The voices in my head are fighting again.

 

My imaginary friend is running with scissors, and one of my personalities wandered off.

 

I don't like to think before I speak. I like to be just as surprised as everyone else about what comes out my mouth.

 

Sometimes even I am afraid of the things my mind comes up with.

Puts a new spin on vegetarianism, don't it?! :lau

 

(In all seriousness, AMAZING cookbook/reference. I've never made anything out of it that wasn't wonderful, and it has recipes for "weirder" stuff like sorrel, Jerusalem artichoke, cardoons, etc...)
