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!!!! droolin.gif  
Thanks, just be careful where you plant them because they come back. They are a root and grow a tall green stem. Since you don't get them all so it comes back. It reminds me of a nice version of Johnson grass, but it does not look like it.

Yeah, I read that, too. I do most of my growing in raised beds (lots of rocks in soil), so I'll likely pick a "permanent" bed for them. I grew sweet potatoes this year, and am having the same problem in a weird way - it's been so warm, they are resprouting! They'll freeze soon, of course...

 

I have wanted to try horseradish but I hear you almost have to plant it in a bottomless bucket, it's so invasive...

@kwhites634An old timer said putting rock salt on a coal bed regularly helps, but I don't know if that is true.

I read that about horseradish too but I almost killed it hu.gif A lot of people grow it in 55 gallon drums cut in half.

My horseradish doesn't spread, but I do mow around it so maybe it would if I didn't. Ours is wild horseradish though, smaller roots, maybe that makes a difference? Or maybe our cold climate.
Pretty much have a endless supply of it and rhubarb growing next to each other.

(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...)
I've never actually heard about it before.
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.

I might try growing cardoons. Supposed to taste like artichokes, never heard of anyone around here growing artichokes so I don't know if we can and they take up a lot of space.

I am not sure what to do with this stuff.CC suggested it makes good alcohol fuel, and while that is really good to know if I ever need a backup fuel source it doesn't help me figure out a good way to eat it.
I wonder if my goats would like it?
Easy and say it slowly pleas!
Do you need a recept recipe for it?
Its a very nice vegetables! You can make a nice soup from it!

Yes, I would like a suggestion of a good way to make it. I have not tried it yet. Something simple would be great.
