Cassava Root

This week while we were in the village we were able to try a new food.  For a snack they dug up some cassava roots for us to have.

Cassava root can be prepared many different ways but this time we just peeled off the hard bark-like outside and ate the inner root raw. 

It was very good and even the Little Sojourners like it!

Tryin' new things,

  1. Another cool post! I was *hoping* you would link up again this week--I enjoyed your post last week so much.

    So, am I correct in understanding that cassava is the same thing as yuca? I just read on that Wikipedia article that you linked to that "Cassava is the third-largest source of carbohydrates for meals in the world." WOW!!! I'm guessing rice and potatoes would be the other two? What do you think?

    Look forward to perusing your blog more when I can.

    Love the pictures.


  2. Wow, I've never even heard of that root. That sweet little happy face really seemed to have enjoyed it Ü

    Thanks for visiting me over at Pittypat paperie and leaving the nice comment about my altered beer carton.

  3. Alicia, I was suprised about that. I have had fried yuca in the US but had never seen the raw root before. I think your guess is probably right about the top three.

    Diane, thanks for stopping by!
