      This was a fun recipe to make - and good too. I've had taro in restaurants before but never had prepared it at home. I remembered hearing somewhere that you need to prepare taro correctly, otherwise you could get sick. So I googled to find out how long to boil it. I found sites that said to boil it with skins on, skins off, from 8 minutes up to 1 1/2 hours. Then there were warnings about wearing rubber gloves because some people would end up with stinging hands when peeling it. I got to the point where I was asking myself if I really wanted to make this recipe, lol. I finally found one place that said that you could microwave a small root for 4-5 minutes. So that's the way I cooked the taro, and it worked really well.

      I made the recipe as directed from that point on, but I did change the oil/butter for each batch as it was turning an ugly color, lol. I'm really glad that I made this and it was really a great snack. The taro tasted like a nutty potato and mixed with the sweet potato and pineapple really well. Thanks for a fun and tasty recipe, my dear friend. Made for ZWT7 for the Emerald City Shakers.
