Jerusalem artichokes are a steady seller in the shop these days and this seems a good time of year to try them out in the boxes. If you've not tried them before they roast nicely with other roots, but the most straightforward way of using them is in soups. The flavour is quite earthy and distinctive, lacking some of the sweetness of some stored roots like carrots and parsnips, but wintry and appealing nonetheless. This batch is from Lincolnshire.
