that is not accurate. the choking hazzard was due to
the size of the candy, which is offered in small cups
of fruit-flavored jelly.
you infidels don't know what's good for you. konnyaku
is quite tasty, but then i'm used to it... for
example, sliced and sauteed in a curry sauce with
other vegetables. as noted, it's a starch and usually
made into bricks, but can also be made into noodles.
there's a restaurant in NY's chinatown that
specializes in konnyaku noodles soups. often referred
to as simply "yam," which is unfort. not accurate.
i have not tasted paeoniifolius though... i wonder how
it tastes different.
