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.
