Pick

How do you pick Eddo?

Look for roots that are firm and dry.
A good eddo should feel heavy as this indicates a higher water content, which leads to a better texture when cooked.
Avoid any eddo roots that feel soft, have wrinkled skin, or show signs of decay.
Additionally, choose roots that have a consistent color and avoid those with dark spots or discoloration, as this may indicate spoilage.

Prepare

How do you prepare Eddo?

Wash, peel and cut the eddo into manageable pieces. Eddo can be boiled around 15 to 20 minutes or steamed until tender, using a steamer basket or microwave.
Once cooked, you can season the eddo with salt, pepper, and any other desired spices or herbs.
Cooked eddo can be used in a variety of recipes, including soups, stews, curries, stir-fries, and mashed dishes.
It can also be roasted or fried and served as a side dish or incorporated into your favorite recipes for a delicious and nutritious meal.

Storage

How do you store Eddo?

Storing eddo in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and keeping it unpeeled can help prolong its shelf life and maintain its quality for longer.
A pantry or cupboard is ideal. Do not refrigerate as refrigeration can cause the roots to spoil more quickly and develop mold.
Eddo can last several weeks from purchase if properly stored.
