Has your little chef tried a yacon?
Fabulously crunchy, sweet and juicy, yacon should appeal to most little chefs, although they will, very likely, be surprised by its fruity flavour, given it looks remarkably like a potato or kumara (sweet potato) at first glance.
FUN FACT: Another name for yacon is Peruvian ground apple. What does this tell you about yacon, little chefs?
Thirsty travellers used to eat wild yacon to quench their thirst. In fact, the word yacon means “water root”. Pretend you’re on a journey, little chefs, and when it’s time to take a break, sit under the shade of a welcoming tree (imaginary or otherwise) and eat your yacon like early travellers did, raw as a snack!
