Crispy Jerusalem Artichokes

I just found out that Jerusalem Artichokes and Sunchokes are the same thing via the farmer at the farmers’ market. Good to know, but they are still just as delicious. I normally have what I thought was one or the other fried at restaurants. Here, I try to prepare them in a healthier manner without losing that taste. Keep them a bit crisp on the inside, they have amazing flavor.
