    Handle them in the kitchen as you would potatoes, but more gently. They are not as resistant to abuse. You can boil, roast, bake, fry, anything you like. Taste and season as you go, that's all. There's no need to peel, just wash them well.

    Attikos is right Oca is much like a potatoe you can do just about the same things with here are a few way to prepare Oca:

    In Mexico, oca is often eaten raw just slice or dice them and serve seasoned with salt, lemon and hot pepper .

    Oca can also be pickled and made in to bottled preserves. You can also dry the Oca in the sun this will make it very sweet. You know it's like a potatoe so you can also bake it mash it and even stew it, I hope this helps out.
