You are the second person to make this request. I have contacted my
mother and asked her to resurrect the recipe.

Hey Margie, Any chance of posting or passing along that sunchoke bread
recipe.  I love using uncommon vegetables and fruit but using them can
be the biggest problem with their limited exposure and knowledge base.  

Thanks,

used to make artichoke bread and people lined up to get a loaf. They
also make a wonderful addition to poultry dressing or even just put in
the bottom of the roast pan where they absorb the juices and get crispy.
