Cassava/Yuca in NOLA?

dzdigits | Sep 16, 2010 07:37 AM

Anyone know where I can get cassava (yuca) here in the NOLA area? I am also interested in amala (fufu).

Also, I want to bake the cassava with the skin on so as to retain the nutrients. Assuming it will be sweet cassava (so no toxins- hopefully when I purchase it they can confirm this for me), is the skin then safe/tasty to eat or should I peel it off prior to eating? By skin, I mean the "under skin"- not the brown bark like "skin" on the outside that is often waxed. TIA!
