3 lb. sunchokes, washed and cut into 1 1/2-inch (4-cm) pieces
2 Tbs. honey
1 to 2 Tbs. Champagne vinegar
Position 1 rack in the upper third and 1 rack in the lower third of an oven. Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C).
In a bowl, toss the carrots with 2 Tbs. of the olive oil and a pinch of salt. In another bowl, toss the sunchokes with the remaining 2 Tbs. olive oil and a pinch of salt. Let stand for about 20 minutes.
Arrange the carrots and sunchokes in a single layer on separate nonstick baking sheets. Transfer to the oven and roast for 10 minutes. Stir the vegetables, then rotate the baking sheets from top to bottom and 180 degrees. Roast for 10 minutes more and stir again. After 20 minutes, the vegetables should be almost done; they should be soft but not falling apart and still have a little bite to them. Continue roasting as needed, checking and stirring every 5 minutes.
Transfer the hot vegetables to a bowl. Add the honey and 1 Tbs. vinegar. Adjust the seasoning with salt and vinegar. Serves 8.

Delicious, seasonal produce!
The Mother Lode Exchange is an Earth conscious organization. We LOVE our PLANET. We know you love our PLANET too! Let's all do our part.
"It is estimated that at least eight million tons of plastic waste is added to the world's oceans each year.
Plastic can remain in the environment for over 1,000 years before it begins to decompose.
And if we continue at the rate we're going, studies predict that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish by weight.
As many as one trillion plastic bags that are produced each year are discarded after 15 minutes of use."
The Exchange has OPENINGS and we are looking for NEW vendors! A place to sell after the seasonal farmer's markets end. Here is what we need: hot coffee and tea vendor, produce vendors, artists, massage therapist, food to-go, cottage food vendors, or other businesses geared towards natural, sustainable and organic living. Join our community and encourage healthy living. The Mother Lode Exchange is a year-round, indoor farmer's market, open every Wed and Sat, 11am-3pm.
Thank you for all of you support so far!
