Scrub off the wax.

You can boil/bake it as you would a potato. When you open it, pull out the central strings. You can eat it that way or cut into french fries and fry. Amazing with curtido.

Daisy Martinex uses them in dough for empanadas and such.

If you have a hispanic grocer in your area you can find them peeled and destrung in the freezer section. Much less hassle to deal with.
