Delicious. I thought there was too much sugar, so I modified to the following: 1.5 lbs taro (2 cups of .5 inch cubes) 5 Tablespoons white sugar 1 Tablespoons brown sugar 1 can (13.5 ounce) coconut milk 1/2 teaspoon sea salt Simmered until the taro was VERY tender, almost dissolving. Took about 20-30 minutes on low. Note that the taro releases a lot of starch, thickening the liquid into a porridge-like consistency. Will definitely make again. Read More

I made this up for my Xmas get-together. It's good the way it is but I added a 10oz can of naturally-sweetened pineapple chunks to fill it out. It's twice as good that way. Read More

This recipe was so easy to make. It's a quick way for me to use up the Taro I had left over from making dumplings. Personally I don't like it too sweet so I took out some of the sugar. Read More
