Benefits of Cassava
How is Cassava Prepared
Cassava should be washed in cold water, trimmed at the ends, and then cooked. If you fail to prepare this root in an appropriate manner, you may not feel very good later. The root of the cassava has small quantities of cyanogenic glycosides, also known as cyanide. After having made sure it s safe to eat, you peel the rough skin with a knife until you have a chunk of white flesh. You can prepare the cassava just as you would a potato or yam, adding it to recipes or baked and made into chips.
