How can I store excess malanga coco either uncooked or after cooked and mashed? Can I freeze the excess after it is cooked and mashed? Is there a way to freeze malanga coco before it is cooked?

Yes, make sure you have really good air tight bags. Make sure when bagging to press access air out.

You peel it then cut up in pieces to boil. Eat that way served with olive oil on it or smash it with olive oil and garlic like mashed potatoes.


It is substitute for mashed potatoes for those that do not want to eat white potatoes that have more starch and are a nightshade vegetable.

I have never heard of this I googled it and it sounds like something I would like. I hope someone here has worked with it before and can offer you good storage tips. I am going to follow this post to learn more!

Can you share how you cook and serve it? It sounds like it is served as a side dish--like yams, which I adore.

I will have to see if I can find it when I head over to our big grocery store two towns over. My local grocery won't have it as they only care yams at the holidays and never have anything that is not a Western PA staple food.
