Jerusalem Artichoke Homefries with Rosemary...

Jerusalem artichokes, also known as the "sunchoke" or "earth apple" are members of the sunflower family. The tubers grow into very pretty, tall yellow flowers, but tend to be a little invasive. The solution? Eat them. Much like parsnips or carrots, roasting is a great option. They are sweet and hearty. I had them as home fries with a fresh egg the other morning.
Thanks to my in-laws who have a whole bin full of these, we will be enjoying them until other garden veggies are in season.

Jerusalem Artichoke Home Fries with Rosemary:
*1 large Jerusalem artichoke tuber, about a pound
*1-2 Tbsp. olive oil
*1 Tbsp chopped rosemary
*1-2 cloves garlic, minced
*sea salt and pepper.

Preheat oven to 375. Scrub tuber(s) well. Chop the root unpeeled into bite size pieces. Toss with remaining ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Transfer to a lined baking sheet, and bake until golden, about 25 minutes. Enjoy!
