cook with taro?

<< < (3/3)

I think one was called Celery Taro for the leaf stalks.
There would probably be others from other Islands.
ps I am in Australia, but the might be in Hawaii too ??
best of luck.

Sautéed with bacon!  I interchange between taro and Brussels sprouts.

Taro is typically ready for harvest when the leaves start to yellow and die back. This is an indication that the plant has stored enough energy in the corm (the underground part of the plant) for consumption.  To propagate taro, you can cut the corm into sections, making sure each section has at least one bud or ""eye."" These buds will develop into new plants. Taro is typically propagated through corm division rather than seeds. While taro plants do produce flowers, they are not commonly grown from seeds. The primary method of propagation is through corms. Taro can be prepared in various ways, and its taste is often described as nutty and slightly sweet. Common cooking methods include boiling, steaming, or frying. Also, be aware that some varieties of taro contain calcium oxalate crystals, which can cause irritation and should be neutralized by cooking. Never consume taro raw.
Speaking of cooking, one popular method to prepare delightful dishes is by using an Instant Pot. For example, you can make delicious Instant Pot chicken wings with taro as a side dish. The Instant Pot's pressure cooking feature ensures a quick and efficient cooking process, resulting in flavorful and tender chicken wings.
