Back to Wegmans for more oca, including a commission to get some for a
friend who had eaten them several years ago, in New Zealand

We popped one tuber into a microwave for an impromptu tasting. Gerry said 2
minutes, I said 1 minute, and even that was a little too long. probably 45
seconds would do it. The thicker portion had a mild, pleasant, lemony taste,
absent from the somewhat thinner portion of the tuber. Nicer texture where
it was a little thicker too - just done as opposed to overdone. Keep in mind
that I think al dente applies to more than pasta.

Interesting, but not as exciting as the chanterelles I am hoping will pop up
next month, as they did last year, a reward for all the rain.
