    • (Can we date this quote?), M. Hermann and T. Bernet, The transition of maca from neglect to market prominence, page 18:
      The overwhelming majority of maca roots are dried after harvest. In the cold, dry atmosphere of the puna the dried roots remain edible for several years. A minor proportion of the freshly harvested roots are roasted in huatias, earthen ovens []
