Roasted Sunchokes

A quick and easy side dish. The sunchokes are slightly sweet so this pairs extremely well with beer braised beef.

Ingredients:
1 lb sunchokes
2 table spoon butter
salt and pepper
ingredients

***

1. Peel the sunchokes. if you get them early in the season you can leave the peel in, it will be thin like a new potato. Just give them a good brushing. The peel is edible, but it gets a tough texture when cooked this way. And it has a lot of inulin, so it might cause some digestive upsets.
