Oca is a firm small waxy crinkled tuber with a tangy, acidic nutty flavor. Their shiny skin ranges from red to white and its inner flesh is white.
Oca skins are thin, edible and delicious! They can be baked, boiled, roasted, mashed, or used in any dish calling for potatoes. Delicious roasted with other vegetables and meats, Oca is frequently eaten with roasted lamb in New Zealand.
