. Plant in the spring and they should be ready by fall. Dig up the tubers. They radiate out near the ground surface. I have gotten over 10 pounds of root from a single plant. Part of that was woody and hard to cut, but the rest was cut into manageable lengths. Make a slit through the “bark” lengthwise. Slip a knife under the ~1/8″ edge and it peels off easily. Cut or scrape off any stringy or hard parts. If left too long it can also develop a core that should be removed. Boil in water and serve with butter, salt & pepper, or slice and pan fry.
Cut the stems in sections to grow more. Put 3 nodes in the ground, 3 nodes above, or lay almost flat. Mulch.
