Also called Sunchokes, the Jerusalem Artichoke is a relative of the sunflower. It is a tuber resembling something between a finger of ginger and a fingerling potato. I roasted them in sage and olive oil with garlic and pine nuts. Drizzled some lemon juice on in the home stretch to fine effect. Never had these before, will definitely seek them out. I was reminded of sea scallops in texture. In a good way.
