Here is a handful of the edible tubers, washed and ready for
cooking or eating raw.
Cook them like potatoes, until they're soft. The skin can be
eaten, or you can peel them. The insides are soft and mild tasting. Very good
with salt and butter!
They can also be eaten raw.
These are actually small tubers. Normally they are much
larger, and are much more lumpy.
You used to be able to find them in certain grocery stores.
But with the current trend towards decreased variety in stores, they are very
hard to find.
If you find any growing naturally, please harvest with care.
They are no longer common.
