(Q) What can he do to protect himself against it? [diabetes]
(A) And twice each week take the Jerusalem artichoke, about the size of a hen egg; first raw – say on Tuesdays – and the next time cooked, say on Thursdays, but cooked in its own juices (as in Patapar Paper). Only eat one each time, you see. When cooked, season it to make it palatable, but do not eat the skin – save the juices and mash with the pulp when it is to be eaten. Eat it with the meal, of course; whether it is taken raw or cooked. Do not take it between meals, but at the regular meal.
