Dear Elizabeth and Friends,

'Chubas' is a new word for me, Elizabeth---this veggie is labled as 'malanga' at Publix and W/Dixie here in Florida, cents a pound!!   Do you know where the word 'chubas' is used or originates??   I LOVE the word!!

The curried Chicken was done using Xanthosoma cf. sagittifolia (in place of potatoes),  Dr. Goncalves says he suspects this  is actually X. robustum.

>Chubas are aroid tubers.  I think Julius used xanthosoma in that dish.

The Best,
