Eddoes are small root vegetables, a variety of Taro. They offer an intensely flavourful alternative to standard potatoes, sweet potatoes and yams and can be prepared and eaten in much the same way. Don’t be put off by their appearance, as after removing the rough brown skin with a peeler they can be easily prepared. Once cooked they have a sweet, subtle, nutty flavour and are delicious mashed with milk, butter and a little grated nutmeg. They are also a great blend in soups and can be fried to make tasty fritters. Eddoes are versatile vegetables and are also perfect for baking, chipping or roasting.
