Cassava Mochi

A sweet treat to close the series - cassava mochi! Guest Chef Jasmine Silverstein joins Erika Kuhr in our final episode to share a simple and delicious dessert using cassava (yuca). Use of this starchy tuberous root cultivated throughout the tropics is a fun and healthy twist on this very familiar dessert in Hawai‘, usually made with rice flour.
