Mystery Ingredient



We were invited to elegant and historic Egremont in East Launceston to dig for a mystery ingredient for next week's Hilbarn box. Possibily the most curious vegetable we've encountered, we plan to include it and a recipe which uses it in Monday's box. Any ideas?

Well done Jenny and sorry Fran. Yes, they're sunchokes (otherwise known as Jerusalem artichokes) and we've included three recipes in today's box to help you get over quite how ugly these root vegetables are - their flowers of course are beautiful!
