Help! I bought these delicious little tubers at the farmers’ market yesterday, but have no idea what they’re called! They are tiny tubers, between an inch and two inches long, and they look like little white maggots. I’ve shown them here with a particularly nice and ripe plum tomato to give an idea of the size.
These little tubers can be eaten raw, and taste a bit like Jerusalem artichokes or asparagus.
The farmer who sold them to me said they are called ‘cosnes’, pronounced ‘cones’, but when I Google this name, nothing comes up. He also said they taste delicious when sauteed in butter or olive oil, something which I have no doubt is entirely accurate.
Does anyone have any idea what these little beauties are called?
