Yacon roots can be prepared raw or cooked. Because their skin can be bitter, they’re typically peeled. After peeling the inner flesh can brown from exposure to air, so peel just before serving (if serving raw) or dress the peeled yacon with a little lemon juice to keep it from oxidizing. Try using raw yacon as you would jicama in fruit salads, salads & slaws.
Yacon roots can also be steamed, stir fried or roasted as you would other root vegetables. They can also be dried & used to make chips.
