Soncino Roots

It is a rather particular vegetable whose main production center is Soncino. Other adjacent towns are also interested by its production, which has been successfully carried out for at least a century.
It is a tap-root, up to 40 centimeters long and rather thin, hard, and white. It must be cooked and has a slightly bitter taste given to the presence of a particular substance called "inulin" with a tonic-digestive function.
It represents one of the most typical vegetables of the province of Cremona, and is usually sold well-cleaned and in transparent packaging.
