Food & Recipes


Boil peeled cassava until tender but firm. Drain well, then break into lengthways finger strips. Since the cassava has natural divisions running the length of the tuber anyway, it is best to use these rather than try to cut them into precise pieces. Don't forget to find and lift out the core, which is totally inedible.
