Directions

  1. Scrub the outside of the taro.
  2. Place in a pot with enough water to half cover the taro.
  3. 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).
  4. Remove and cool.
  5. 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).
  6. Place the coconut milk and the taro cubes into a saucepan and heat thoroughly.
  7. There should be enough milk to just cover the taro.
  8. Taste during cooking to see if taro needs more salt.
