Cutting Terms

[Caribbean] Also known a coco, Taro and tannia, dasheen is a starchy tuber that is usually served boiled or cut up and used as a thickener in hearty soups. While considered by some to have a texture and flavor superior to that of a Jerusalem Artichoke or potato. Potatoes can often be used as a substitute for dasheen in recipes. Dasheen is often called coco, but Coco is actually a slightly smaller relative of dasheen.
