Kraft Kitchens Tips

Best of Season
Known as mandioca in Paraguay, yuca is available year-round. Look for firm, well-formed tubers, free of blemishes, with a clean fresh scent. Store whole mandioca in a cool, dark dry place for up to 1 week. Store peeled mandioca in the refrigerator covered with water. Or, freeze whole mandioca for several months.
Substitute any winter squash for the pumpkin.
