It's all about the chokes

I cooked some of the sunchokes with supper tonight.  It was really easy -- wash; chop; toss with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder; saute for about fifteen minutes over medium low and then a few minutes on high for a final crisping.

They were yummy.  Hubby thinks they taste like sunflower seeds, which makes sense since they are indeed a type of sunflower.  The boys weren't big fans, but I didn't expect them to be. Not yet, anyway.  I'm going to try to win them over gradually.  Maybe I'll make sunchoke hashbrowns this weekend.  Monkeys love hashbrowns.

Tell your boys that they make you fart. I guarantee the will be fighting over them just to fart on each other. Or just call them Fartychokes. That should shift a few helpings!

I'm trying this simple recipe tonight! Thanks.

Rick -- Great idea! That will definitely work on monkey #2, who takes great pride and pleasure in his flatulent talents.

Mama Pea -- Let me know how it works for you!
