In the spirit of cooking with foods from South America and Mexico, I decided to giveyuca root (cassava) a try. There are several ways to prepare this popular food, but since I love to deep fry food I decided to use this method.
The two-step process starts with par-boiling the yuca, then frying it. Cutting the yuca is a daunting task, but with a cleaver and a very sharp knife you will be rewarded with crispy yet creamy yuca fries that are worth the effort. Try serving these instead of french fries as a snack and see what your friends think.
