Recipe Notes

  • Just scrub the Jerusalem artichokes well with a vegetable brush under running water and leave the peel to avoid the job of peeling the knobby artichokes.
  • Wine Recommendation: The soft nutty flavors and rich texture of pinot gris beautifully complement the earthy sweetness of this tasty soup. Try 1from a well-known Alsace producer such as Trimbach, Sparr, Beyer, or Hugel.
