4as a starter or 6 as a side dish

IT’S A SHAME THE POOR OLD JERUSALEM ARTICHOKE DOESN’T LOOK AS ATTRACTIVE AS SOME OF ITS TUBEROUS RELATIVES. I reckon its flavour has got a lot going for it if only shoppers would take the leap and add this knobbly brown root to their shopping basket. Restaurants are doing their bit, though, to encourage diners by matching Jerusalem artichokes with scallops and all sorts of other delights, because they are so versatile.
