How to Prepare Yuca for Cooking

Yuca has a thick brown skin which needs to be peeled to reveal the crisp white flesh inside. The tuber also has a tough fibrous core that needs to be removed before use. Use a sharp knife to remove both the peel and the inner core.

Food Facts

When purchasing yuca, look for firm well-formed tubers with unblemished peels and a clean fresh scent. Store unpeeled yuca in a cool dry place for up to 1 week. If peeled, cover the yucca with water and store in refrigerator up to 24 hours. Or, place the peeled yuca in a freezer-weight resealable plastic bag and freeze up to 3 months. Yuca cannot be consumed raw and should always be cooked before eating.

Shortcut

Yuca can be found in the frozen section of Hispanic grocery stores. Follow package directions for cooking.
