I've read that Jerusalem artichoke flowers were eaten by Native Americans. I haven't found any reference on how to eat them. My plants usually have a lot of blooms, so I'd really like to try them. Franz, do you or anyone else have suggestions. I hope this isn't too off topic?

Thanks, Tyler. I never thought of looking them up as just sunflowers. They sound interesting. I'll try them next summer.
