Its very impoartant to note there are many varieties of yuca root. The varieties breakdown into two main categories: bitter and sweet. I've only tried this recipe with the sweet variety. I've never seen bitter in the market, but if its not labeled, I ask the produce staff to make sure its sweet. Also, the skin contains a mild poison, so these fries should not be prepared with the skin.
I made these fries with garlic -- added slices of garlic to the boiling water and lots of minced garlic was tossed in with the fries, yum! Also, I seasoned the fries with chipolte pepper and coarse sea salt. This is now my new recipe for garlic fries. Its a great replacement for starchy potatoes.
