‘Taro’ potato, ‘Satoimo’ in Japanese, has creamy & slimy texture and I love it. I often use Frozen Satoimo that are already peeled and ready to cook, because my hands often feel itchy when I peel Satoimo skin. However, today I found very good looking, perfectly small in size fresh Satoimo at a local green grocer, and I bough about 500g. The green grocer sells a very wide range of vegetables and fruit, and I can’t thank them enough!
