[gardeners] Jerusalem artichokes

Today I was at Harry's, a farmers' market in Atlanta, and I saw some
Jerusalem artichokes. I bought a couple for 19 cents. Can I just stick
them in the ground as I bought them, do I need to let them sit in the
light till they sprout, or are they not even plantable? I remember
reading about these as a forgotten, easy, perennial crop, but I've never
eaten them and have no idea what to do with them. 

Thanks in advance for any helpful advice.

Do some gardeners turn their lights on in the evening so they can watch
their phlox by night?
