I accidentally sold the ones I was planning to eat this year, so haven't had a chance to experiment much. Last year they were crunchy, nutty, fairly innocuous tasting with a hint of a vegetable flavor. They produce abundantly, though, and require little care.

I love eating them (would not dig mine - too pretty!) the same way you prepare potatoe salad. It's important not to overcook the tubers. They taste someway 'nutty'.
