The other day I picked up some sun chokes or Jeresulem artichokes.  I peeled them and then shredded them in the food processor and put them in a small pot  with oil a tablespoon of water and  salt.  I rather forget them, having set the timer to steam them for 10 minutes, until I smelled a sensation like that of hash browns frying!  Yum. 

 

I enjoyed a delicious vegetable that night , for sure.  I can't wait until I can find some more.  I recommend trying these for these to anyone not wanting to have potatoes, but that likes the taste and feel of them.  Anyone just wanting to extend their diet might also want to try this.

 

Incase anyone is wondering they are in the sunflower family.  They are roots of a certain variety.  I want to get some in my garden!

I used to have a patch of them in my yard when I lived in Connecticut. They even look like sunflowers, tall and green, except the flowers are small. They keep coming back each year and each year the patch grows bigger. They can take over your whole yard! They taste even better after the first frost. If you eat them raw in a salad they have a wonderful nutty flavor and the texture of water chestnuts. They are great cooked any way you might cook a potato. I used to slice them thin and fry them. The only problem using homegrown artichokes is that all of those little "nubbies" hold the dirt. You need to scrub them with a toothbrush and even then it's hard to get all of the dirt off of them.

 

I miss them. Can't buy them in a grocery store here and I doubt if they'd grow here either. Enjoy some for me!

Artichokes will do great in a pot. You could take it in during the winter. They grow in AZ - surely they'll grow there!

I have this growing in my garden but I haven't tried eating the roots. Unfortunately, they aren't spreading like wildfire...time to get my soil checked! Guess I will try it at the end of the season provided they do spread a bit.

If they can grow in my area, they can grow anywhere.  Honest.  They grow in northern Alberta!  I get them from the Farmer's Market sometimes.  My favourite thing to do with them is to make a mean roasted wild mushroom and sunchoke soup.

Oh hey I totally forgot it's harvest time for artichokes, they grow wild all over my garden but I've never bothered eating them. Because I didn't know they were good for leaky guts until this year. They are a very invasive plant, super easy to grow, weed like actually!

I'm glad they worked for you.  I can't touch the things.  Gave me the most horrid stomach pains and gas.

I've seen them at the organic market and the farmer's market in the summer, but never tried them. Now's time to give it a shot. And if they're tasty maybe I'll try growing some.

 

Thanks

    • The Op hasn't been on the forum for over a year.  Not sure if she has notifications turned on.   you might want to re- think putting your real name on a forum that will Be seen by thousands of people & a dozen trolls.
    • MariaofColumbia,   I came across this thread when a two different friends had posted on facebook.  I read it and felt like you were talking to me.  I've had issues for 7 years now.  My candida cannot get under control.  I went and checked my vitamin B levels and they are high.  I've been on methyl folate for several months now, but only one pill a day.  I do have one MTHFR gene mutation.  I've tried SO MANY candida diets/options and the minute I stray it is back out of whack...or it never really gets rid of it.  I pick up viruses fairly frequently because my immune system is so taxed.  I'm so very tired of dealing with this!!!  I'm wondering if you could go into more detail as to what exactly you started taking/how often/what foods you still avoided (sugar/vinegar/mushrooms/peanut butter/etc), and where your healthy B levels are at now?  You can find me on facebook as Jessica Hecker Andersen and we could always private message as well.  I really wish I could just call you!  lol.  Please, any further information would be very much appreciated.  Thank you!
    • Thank you all for taking the time to respond.  It's comforting to know I have a place to ask questions and share my concerns.   My daughter's antibodies are as follows: 1/9/17:  783.6 (before stopping gluten) 5/16/17: 69.7 8/14/17: 50.6 Her thyroid/hormones all in normal range.  An endoscopy in May showed her villi looked good with minimal damage. Her B12 (checked on 8/14/17) is excellent.  Her antibodies will be checked again when she returns home in Dec.  She avoids gluten as much as possible, however she's away at college so cross contamination is likely.  She eats extremely well -- mostly salads, vegetables, protein, fruits, rice.  When on the go she supplements with kind bars, quest bars, or Rx bars.  She'll snack on gluten-free crackers (Blue Diamond made from almonds), hummus, peanut butter, and popcorn.  Once in awhile she'll treat herself to Tate's gluten-free cookies or Halo ice cream.  She's in college so, yes, she drinks alcohol on occasion.  Titos gluten-free vodka, but no beer!  Since stopping gluten her stomach feels much better, less bloating and pain (her main complaints before stopping gluten).  I do notice when she's home on break from college she will have a healthy, nice sized portion of food at each meal and say she feels very full afterward, yet shortly after she will feel hungry again and need to reach for a snack (always a healthy one).  She takes 2 gluten free gummy Multi-Vites (same as Costco brand I believe) as well as vitamin D daily.   She was diagnosed with celiac on 1/11/17, stopped gluten immediately, and her last period started on 1/13/17.  For six years her period was very regular and it only changed once she stopped eating gluten.  I have to believe there is a connection.  The frustrating part is that nobody has any answers.  I know my daughter would feel a lot better if her cycle returned.  We will seek the advice of a nutritionist as well as continue speaking to doctors, but in the meantime if you have any more suggestions I welcome them (i.e., foods, supplements, vitamins, etc).  Thank you all very much!            
    • If only they were peanut free . I been buying my seeds from Gerbs allergen friendly foods for past 5+ years. I end up buying my almonds, walnuts, and pistachios from dedicated companies....got to admit I get a better deal on almonds but I go through 25lbs every 2 months.
