We've been thinking about how much we miss yucca fries (errr - that's actually yuca fries
), easily available in our old Florida haunts, but not so common up North. It's not a surprise that this photo comes from a Florida cook and photographer... Yuca (or yucca) is a creamy, starchy root when fried - like potatoes but sweeter and creamier. Kind of chewy and tender. Absolutely delicious. We are missing it bad enough to grate up a mess and try it ourselves this weekend.
