Sunchokes (also known as Jerusalem artichokes) look like small, knobbly potatoes, but they are crunchier and sweeter. They can substitute for water chestnuts in hot and spicy stir fries. They can also be used to thicken soups or baked in the oven.
Here’s a easy recipe. Let us know how it comes out!
- 1/2 pound sunchokes
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 Tbsp dried thyme
- 1 Tbsp minced garlic
- sea salt to taste
Mix olive oil, thyme, garlic, and sea salt together in a large bowl. Add tuber pieces and toss to coat. Arrange coated pieces in one evenly-spaced layer on a baking sheet.
Roast until tender, 35 to 45 minutes.
You are invited to join us on the Saturday after Thanksgiving for
Family Farm Fun Day

If you need an excuse to avoid the mall and instead have some down-to-earth fun with the whole family, come to Wild Willow Farm on Saturday, November 29 from 10am to 2pm. We'll have fun, hands-on activities suitable for every age, including cheesemaking and soapmaking workshops with fresh goat milk, and a photo booth so you can get photos with our too-cute baby goats.
Plus farm volunteering and more!
