sunchokes roasted with rosemary

These tiny organic sunchokes are easier to eat than they are to peel!  Sweet and tender, they contain no starch, are high in potassium, iron and inulin, making them good for diabetics. Cultivated by many Native American tribes, sunchokes are frost-hardy so can be harvested now.
