I'm currently completing a corporate challenge where you count steps and head to different world destinations to find out interesting "facts".
Today we had a fact or fiction quiz at Machu Picchu, something along the lines of "Did ancient Incas use potatoes as a measure of time?". With the "correct" answer being that it was a true fact.
Here are some other links making the same claim, I'm not providing quotes because they are essentially the same: "Incas used the time it took to cook a potato as a measure of time".
Is there any truth to this claim?
I can't find any reliable sources and nothing on Snopes.
