About the product
These long taro roots, an old standby in the Kanto region of Japan, are soft and have high viscosity. They come in 20g to 30g pieces.
Taro, which can be white or purple, is a somewhat sweet root vegetable that is frequently used in a variety of both savory dishes and desserts in Asia and in the Pacific Islands. Taro can be added frozen to stews and cooked with your choice of seasonings. It can also be used in Indian-style curry, Hawaiian poi, and a variety of other dishes. Taro contains vitamin E, as well as some potassium and magnesium.
Sugarlady’s produce is harvested in season and then frozen immediately in order to ensure the highest possible nutritional value and best flavor, and remains vibrant and undamaged when frozen for long periods. Even if our taro remains frozen for months, once defrosted it will still have its color.
How to prepare
Without defrosting the package, take out the portion of taro you will be using. To make fukumeni (a type of Japanese stew), first season and heat your broth. When the broth comes to a boil, add the taro frozen and cook on medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Then add the drop-lid, lower the heat, and stew. If you need to cut the taro, thaw it in the microwave until it’s soft enough to slice with a knife, and cut into any size pieces you desire.
