Although preparing a fried first course can be nerve-racking at a dinner party, you just might want to throw caution to the wind for these little bits of crunchy bliss, made with savory Jerusalem artichokes and peppery scallions to contrast with the sour fresh cranberries. It’s all spiked with caraway seeds for a beery, aromatic push that actually keeps the others flavors more distinct. (These fritters would also be a great Thanksgiving starter!)
Make Ahead Tips
The batter can be stirred together up to 30 minutes in advance; cover and let stand at room temperature.
Serving suggestion: Serve on a bed of applesauce.
Jerusalem artichokes, sometimes called “sunchokes,” are the tuber of a common form of North American sunflower. The vegetable is mild and starchy, more earthy than a potato, and sweeter, too. We’d be remiss if we didn’t tell you they can cause gastric upset in some people. You might poll your guests the week before the party, just to be sure.
