Tuber of unknown origin

Recommended Posts

At least I think it is a tuber... I bought this lot at the market for 1€.... I have no idea what they are!  They are about 3-4" long. The vendor says they are sunchokes, but they look like no variety I have seen. Any thoughts or suggestions on how to prepare them?

If they are in the sun choke family - watch your guts when you eat them. 

 

A little google searching - suggests they might be more like mashua.

Could they be crosnes? Or too smooth & uniform?
 

I dunno, but most things are good with enough butter 😋
