Is Yucca skin safe to eat ?
I bought today a big Yucca root. From what I've read it is cooked in a way similar to how the potatoe is cooked.
I was wondering if the skin was safe to eat ? Most of the recipes I saw online involve peeling the Yucca root before cooking it.
My root has wax covering it, so I may just peel it anyways because of this but I am curious.
I'd assume it's like most root vegetable peels - you CAN eat them, but peeling is a good idea due to anti-nutrients being in the skin. So I guess it's a matter of can vs. should.
I'd definitely skip eating the skin off of yours because of the wax, though.
Yes, you can eat it. I like to peel it though.
I made shampoo from yucca a while ago and it is my new favorite thing! Ancient Embrace: Yucca Shampoo
