Oca is a starchy vegetable, carefully cultivated over centuries by the Incas and sustained throughout modern day Peru and other pockets of South America. These particular selections come from meticulously selected seed stock planted in southern California. Like potatoes, Oca have a crunchy texture when raw that will transform versatilely depending on how they're prepared. Their flavor profile, however, is more complex and gratifying, with an earthy, nutty backbone offset by tangy brightness. We strongly encourage taking any of your favorite potato recipes for a spin with these, and assure you'll love the intuitive preparation and pleasantly surprising twist in flavor profile.
