How to peel Yuca or Cassava is a starchy root vegetable used in latin (Cuban) kitchens throughout the world. It is normally served at special occasions like,”Noche Buena” (Christmas Eve). I enjoy making yuca throughout the year in various ways. Fresh Yuca can be found in just about any grocery store nowadays, but if you can try using frozen Yuca, it will be already peeled for you. Just incase you want to buy some fresh yuca, here is a quick video I made showing you how to peel it. Enjoy!
