DIRECTIONS

  • Scrub the outside of the taro.
  • Place in a pot with enough water to half cover the taro.
  • Cover and boil for about 1 1/2 hours, or until tender. (Make sure the taro is cooked very well, for the starches can irritate and scratch the throat if not cooked through completely).
  • Remove and cool.
  • Peel away the outside skin and chop taro into large cubes. (Cooked taro at this point can be mashed and formed into cakes that are delicious sauteed with butter).
  • Place the coconut milk and the taro cubes into a saucepan and heat thoroughly.
  • There should be enough milk to just cover the taro.
  • Taste during cooking to see if taro needs more salt.
