Potatoes and Jerusalem Artichokes

I like regular mashed potatoes a lot, but sometimes it’s nice to have something different. Today we had mashed potatoes and Jerusalem artichokes, soy patties and pickled cucumbers for dinner. The recipe below makes enough for two people, so double it if you have more eaters.

Mashed Potatoes and Jerusalem Artichokes

10 jerusalem artichokes
12-15 potatoes
water and salt for boiling
1-2 tbsp margarine

Peel the potatoes. Put some water into a pot, bring to boil and season with salt. Add potatoes and let slowly boil while you prepare the Jerusalem artichokes. Put cold water into a bowl. Peel the Jerusalem artichokes and put them to the cold water immediately after peeling so they’ll keep their white colour. When they’re all peeled, drain and put to the pot and boil with the potatoes until both are soft. Drain, but save some of the liquid. Mash the potatoes and Jerusalem artichokes, add margarine and about 1 dl saved liquid and stir until mixed.
