Frost has arrived, so the roots were dug today, and now I have to decide how to cook as an experiment. This is my first experience with cooking the roots.

Wash the tubers well, peel them, and boil them until they become tender (20 minutes in a Pressure Cooker). Then bake them in the oven at about 350 F for half an hour to 45 minutes. The first cooking process denatures the oxalate crystals, and the second converts the starch to something digestible. Most pleasant to eat. Variety in one's diet if the tubers are available.

My plant only produced one mature tuber, due to the shortness of the season in Zone 5.

Variety in the diet is excellent. I tried sowing camas this year for that reason. Unfortunately, I had no luck. I'll try again next year.
