Jerusalem artichokes

Preparation method

  • Wash the Jerusalem artichokes and cook them with the peel on in water with a little salt.
  • Cut the Jerusalem artichokes in half and scrape the flesh out with a spoon. Use the flesh of the Jerusalem artichokes for a smooth purée or even for a sorbet.
  • Dry the skins at 65°C for 10 hours.
  • Then deep fry them in oil at 160°C until golden and crispy.
  • Season to taste with salt for a savoury snack, or sprinkle with some icing sugar for a sweet twist.

Serving suggestions

  • The sweet version can be used as part of a dessert with a Jerusalem artichoke sorbet, citrus fruits, and ginger.
  • The savoury version can be used to top off a soup or salad, as an entremets, or as a crisp to accompany a fish dish.
