FAQs about taro

Unlike other tubers and root vegetables, taro doesn't keep well for long periods. Taro roots will last for a few days if you store them in a cool, dark, well-ventilated spot. They won't do well in the refrigerator. The leaves, however, should go in the refrigerator. Wrap them in a damp paper towel inside a sealed plastic bag, and they'll also last for several days.

You can freeze raw taro as well. First, boil it on high for five minutes, then let it cool and drain it. Pack it in a freezer bag and freeze immediately. If you have leftovers from your taro dish, they should go in the refrigerator or freezer within two hours. Cooked leaves can be frozen as well. 

Taro has more nutritional value than potatoes and most other tubers and root vegetables. Taro is low in calories, full of fiber, and has B and C vitamins, free radical-fighting antioxidants, and minerals like copper, zinc, manganese, potassium, phosphorus, calcium, and iron. That means taro is a healthy choice for your heart, thyroid, blood, energy, metabolism, weight, digestion, vision, circulation, immune system, blood sugar, and blood pressure, and they might even reduce cancer risk. 

Here's a simple home remedy: Wash the itchy area in cold water, then cover with table salt or baking soda. Add a bit more cold water to create a paste-like consistency and rub in thoroughly. Rinse in cold water. Repeat several times, if necessary, until the itching subsides.
