  1. This sounds like a really nice soup recipe to try. I’ve never heard of Jerusalem artichoke before, so I looked it up and found out among other places it also grows in Texas, which is where I live. So I have no idea why I’ve never heard of it. It looks a lot like ginger root, which it obviously is not. This has piqued my curiosity, so I must now go in search of Jerusalem artichoke. Thank you for introducing me to something new to try.

    • Hi Mary πŸ™‚
      I’m glad you feel like trying this soup, it really is delicious. Here in Denmark the Jerusalem artichoke is a root you will find in grocery stores every fall and winter, we use it quite a lot πŸ™‚ Same thing regarding beets, parsnips, parsley roots and other winter veggies. Danish soil is great for those kind of veggies apparently πŸ™‚ The land of potatoes πŸ˜‰

      Thank you for writing, I love connectning with my readers πŸ™‚

      Hugs

      • I haven’t been able to find the Jerusalem artichoke, and no one seems to know what I’m talking about. It’s common for me to not be able to find some food items because I don’t live in a big city. But I’m not going to give up. I’m visiting a friend in Norway, Maybe we can find all the ingredients, so she and I can make this together.
