Food History-A Family Affair

Cleaning Jerusalem Artichokes

 At many of my food history programs, I have a hands-on activity which I try to accomodate many ages-the very young to the young at heart!  This family with their young son Griffin cleaned Jerusalem artichokes for the preparation of Jerusalem Artichoke Balls.  It was a delight to watch them as they worked together!  After Griffin tried his hand at both the washing and mashing, he went to visit the farm and returned just in time to try a Jerusalem Artichoke ball as it came out of the spider.  He loved it!  Now that is REAL food history!
