Jerusalem Artichoke Relish (case)
- Customer Reviews (0)
They're not too pretty, but they sure are tasty!
The Jerusalem Artichoke, also known as sunroot or sunchoke, is neither from Jerusalem, nor is it an Artichoke! Go figure! They are actually native to North America and are grown from eastern Canada to northern Florida. The origin of the name is uncertain, but early Pilgrims are said to have named it when they came to the New World, calling it Jerusalem after the 'New Jerusalem' they were creating in the wilderness. The artichoke part comes from the taste of the edible tuber.*
Our Jerusalem Artichoke Relish is Sassard's most popular and best-selling product. In fact, it has been a staple among Charleston families for generations. We use only the finest, freshest ingredients. Our Jerusalem Artichokes are grown right here in the U.S.A., so you can be sure our products meet the highest food safety criteria.
Jerusalem artichokes have 650 mg potassium per 1 cup (150g) serving. They are also high in iron, and contain 10-12% of the US RDA of fiber, niacin, thiamine, phosphorus and copper. The artichoke contains about 10% protein, no oil, and a surprising lack of starch. Jerusalem artichokes have also been promoted as a healthy choice for diabetics, because fructose is better tolerated by people who are diabetic.
• Serve as a garnish for ham, roasted turkey or baked chicken
• Serve atop a cracker by itself or with cream cheese or a slice of sharp cheddar
• Add it to potato salad or cole slaw for something different and really yummy!
• Serve it up in a bun with your favorite brat & sweet potato mustard—we call this the Charleston Dog! Delicious!!
