  • Bring 3 quarts of water to a boil.
  • Add in a pinch of salt and ½ pound peeled, frozen yucca. This is what it will look like before you put it in.
  • Remove yucca when a fork can be easily inserted and removed – how long this takes depends on how thick the yucca root is. Place yucca on a plate or cutting board.
  • In the center of the yucca is a stringy stem that is too tough to chew. Remove it and cut the yucca in to french fry strips that are about 1/4 inch wide.
  • Fry in 1/4 inch coconut oil over medium heat until golden brown.
