This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in Food Prep and Preservation

For this badge bit, you will cook and serve one pound of sunchokes (aka Jerusalem Artichokes).

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must provide:
   - a picture of the sunchokes on a scale
   - a picture of the sunchokes being prepared
   - a picture of the sunchokes being served

Sunchokes are awesome, and they are easy to grow.
They also grow in massive quantities, which makes them a good source of food to harvest!

Some ways to prepare sunchokes include:
Roasted sunchokes
Pan-fried sunchokes

I was trying to be as quick as I possibly could, since this BB requires cooking to begin within two hours of harvest. So, I do apologize for a couple of my harvest photos for being a tad shaky.

These are three photos of me harvesting the sunchokes. I began harvesting the sunchokes at 17:03.







This is a photo of my about 1.5 lbs of freshly harvested sunchokes.



This is a photo of me preparing the sunchokes.



This is a photo of me cooking the sunchokes.



This is a photo of the cooked sunchokes, served on a plate and garnished with rosemary. I had the sunchokes served by 17:48.



My rough recipe for the sunchokes was sunchokes simply fried in coconut oil with sea salt on high for a few minutes, simmered on low for longer, and then garnished with rosemary.
Staff note (Mike Haasl) :

I certify this BB complete!

This BB has been moved to Straw.  Dave, if you want to use it for Sand you are grandfathered in.  If you'd rather save it for Straw, that's cool too.
