Basic Method for Cooking Sunchokes

1 lb (450g) Peeled or scrubbed sunchokes
2 tablespoons finely chopped Parsley
3 tablespoons butter
Salt to taste
Freshly ground pepper

Scrub the sunchokes with a brush (peel if desired), and drop into cold water with a teaspoon of lemon juice. Cover and boil in water for 10-20 minutes, depending on their size. Alternatively, sunchokes may be sliced 1/4 inch thick and boiled in water until just fork tender. Remove from heat and drain.

If cooked whole, slice, then toss with the parsley and butter. Add a touch more lemon juice if desired. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Serve hot. Serves 3-4.
