Do you know what this odd looking thing is? It is organic yuca plant. It has been growing for several months and is ready to harvest and sell. Hard to dig when it gets like this. The only way I have eaten yuca is fried. Very popular here in Panama. Wash, peel and slice the roots into 3-4 inch long, finger sized chunks. Then boil them until a fork or knife inserts easily into them. Tino says that normally they are refrigerated at this time to harden them up some before frying. But when we have done the, we just immediately fried them in coconut oil mixed with a little olive oil. Drain them well and serve with your favorite dip like peanut sauce or ketchup. And of course, they need salt too.
Anyone have a different recipe to share? Maybe a more healthy recipe?
