I recently was able to make my first visit to one of the Santa Monica farmer's markets, and was intrigued by these root vegetables that I bought from a vendor there. They're small little tubers that are somewhat "grub-like" both shape and size-wise, while having a texture and taste reminiscent of Jersusalem artichokes (sunchokes). They were being sold in very small "snack-sized" ZipLock bags, at a somewhat pricey $4/bag.
I'd like to find out a little more about them. A link to a picture I took of them follows:
Thanks in advance to all Chowhounder's with more informtion!
