Yacon

Eaten by the Inca's as a snack or sweet, Peruvian ground apple –or- yacón is still enjoyed by Peruvians every day.

 

With a texture similar to that of an apple and a flavor profile that can be described as a cross between water melon, apple and cucumber yacón makes for a healthy delicious snack.

The tubers are large and weigh from a few hundred grams to as much as kilogram. Yacón tubers contain inulin, a sugar that the human body does not metabolize, making yacón popular a low-calorie sweetener for diabetics and people on diet.
