How to make potato truffle sauce

  • Add sunchokes, potato, water, and a pinch of salt to a small sauce pot and bring to a boil.  Simmer for 18 minutes or until the sunchokes and potatoes are done.  Strain out the water, and place the rest ingredients (cheese, butter) into a blender.
    Add 1 1/3 cup of the cooking water and puree for 30 seconds until smooth and creamy. If the sauce seems too thick add a little more water.   Taste the sauce and finish with truffle oil and additional salt if needed.  Set aside and keep warm

How to cook Jerusalem artichokes

  • Wash and dry the Jerusalem artichokes. Place on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30-35 minutes or until they are tender all the way through.
    Take and let them cool. You can trim off any of the “knobs” on the Jerusalem artichokes if they are tough. Then slice them into 1/8-1/4 thickness and place them back on the sheet pan. Season the slices with a little more salt and drizzle with a touch of olive oil.
