Yacon Tubers

Q:  Yacon Tubers

Your Yacon is delicious but I’m a bit mystified by the round, dark red tubers attached to the edible and the knobbly – mind telling me what to do with them?

A:

The yacon tubers are really exceptionally sweet.  I think they become even sweeter the longer they are stored.

As regards the tubers I can only guess.  I presume that all smooth tubers are the edible ones while the more knobbly ones in the middle are for propagation, so you may as well try them and see what you think.
