Soup of Jerusalem artichoke with dairy cream

Soup made from Jerusalem artichoke

A "fortune" in Jerusalem artichoke
If you have to buy Jerusalem artichoke in the supermarket, you can easily end up paying a "fortune" for these roots. People having the Jerusalem artichoke as plant in their garden will be more than happy to share the roots with you, as this plant very, very easily spreads it self.

So coming to work finding a big bag of Jerusalem artichoke just made my day, so a BIG thank you to a good working colleague for sharing his "treasure" of Jerusalem artichoke with me :-)

Another option you can try is soup of Jerusalem artichoke and mascarpone
UPDATE 3 November 2015:
This soup is being forward for the monthly blogging event Tea Time Treats having the theme of soups, borths and stocks. Tea Time Treast is managed by Karen from Lavender and Lovage and Jane from The Hedge Combers.
