|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.
Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, "In this world, Elwood, you must be" - she always called me Elwood - "In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant." Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me.

|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'.|
