What is Yacon?
The yacon root (Smallanthus sonchifolius), sometimes called the Peruvian ground apple, is similar to jicama in appearance, taste and texture. Both are tubers that have a sweet mild flavor and can be eaten raw. The yacon root is found to grow wild in the Andes Mountains, between the countries of Colombia and Argentina. Yacon root is processed into syrup via a process similar to that of maple syrup. Yacon root has been used for centuries in South American countries for its health properties.
