    Ok it is similar to potato soup. Jerusalem Artichokes get softer than a potato if boiled too long. So I brown 2 sliced onions and 1/2 stalk celery in a skillet. In a pot boil the whole/unpealed Jerusalem Artichokes and when they are getting soft remove half of them to add back later. Continue boiling until ready to mash. Remove water then mash. Add
    4 cups milk
    4 cups water
    1 tbsp poultry seasoning
    1 tsp Thyme
    1 tsp onion powder
    1 tsp garlic powder
    1 tsp pepper
    1 pound diced ham
    1 diced apple fresh(gives texture and sweetness) but is submissive
    add diced cooked Jerusalem Artichokes
    bring to a light boil then let simmer 15 minutes
    add the browned onions and celery
    salt to taste, I like salt
    The mashed chokes will create a thickening
    It is good when served with fresh GUMP bread!
    NOTE: reduction in amount of liquids added will cause gravy/sauce.
    I sometimes add diced potatoes but this reduces the diabetic qualities of the Jerusalem Artichokes. Jerusalem Artichokes have a musky/smokey flavor that is hard to overpower with spice and could be used in small quantities as more of a spice than a main ingredient in other recipes. I am thinking of adding some to next time we make sausage.
