• 1 pound sunchokes cut into half centimeter ovals.
  • 2 cups olive oil
  • Salt


  1. Heat your oil up to around 325
  2. Drop in one of your sunchoke slices, and if it sizzles, you are good to go.
  3. Once you add the slices, just keep an eye on them. It will take a good ten minutes to fry these through.
  4. Fry until they have gone past golden brown, but aren't burned… they'll continue to cook a bit outside the pan.
  5. Strain the oil. And set the 'Fries' on a paper towel.
  6. With fine grain sea salt, season liberally.
