I've seen people here talking about the invasiveness, the growth conditions, the *ahem* wind generation...
But my problem is this: I've grown two varieties (red fuseau and hypernova) and they taste identical: RIDICULOUSLY nutty / earthy. To me, they taste nothing like artichoke. At all.
I tried frying. Nope - still nutty. The wife tried making sunchoke pancakes, potato-pancake style. Nope.
We've tried to "hide" the flavor with citrus acid, or ketchup, etc. Not happening.
Is there any way to reduce the overwhelming, all-consuming "nutty" flavor? Perhaps a variety bred to not taste as nutty, or a cooking technique that removes that element?
