  • Remove the stringy core in the center.
  • Cut each half crosswise into 2-inch lengths.
  • Place the big chunks of Yucca into a 2 quart pot of salted water and cook over medium heat covered until the pieces are tender ~ 30 minutes.
  • Drain on a cloth towel and cool.
  • When ready to fry, add enough oil to a 1-quart sauce pan or deep fryer to make depth of at least one inch..
  • Heat oil to 375 degrees.
