In Season - Jerusalem Artichokes

The fine specimines on the left as spotted whilst out on a trip to Borough Market.

Don’t be afraid of these strange little things! They may look unappealing, like muddy ginger, but they are January's nutritional stars, full of taste and low on calories.

Perfect for guilt-free New Year menus.

 - Rustic - rinse and scrub roughly with a brush before boiling
 - Roasted - mix half and half with your late winter roots
 - Gratin - slice wafer thin before adding the cream
