* Yacun Syrup

I hadn’t heard about Yacun syrup until I came across it at work. I was very intrigued and wanted to find out exactly what it is. Yacun syrup is a treacle-like sweetener made from yacon roots from Peru. I’ve used it in this recipe mainly because I wanted to experiment with the flavour of it, but also because its great for our digestive health. Yacon acts as a pre-biotic which means it helps feed the good bacteria in our digestive system. Don’t worry if you can’t source Yacun syrup for this recipe. You can simply replace it with some raw honey. To read more about how Loving Earth source and make their Yacun syrup check out their website.
