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.
 
Blueberry pie is best when it is firm and you can hold in your hand. Smell it. And smell this tiny ad:
