I mentioned you on my Yuca Alcapurrias post that if you did not have the equipment, muscle or simply, like me, you’re too lazy to grind yuca all by yourself… you can certainly use frozen ground masa already available at supermarkets.
I visited the supermarket the other day with camera on hand to show you the different kinds of masas available for you already…
You see, on the left, you have masa for alcapurrias and/or pasteles… you also have ground yautía by itself which would be delicious for these yautía fritters Mili and I used to make at the Center. You also have masa made from green banana, great to make little dumplings and boil into a soup.
In this other photo, you can see the ground yuca in the center… flanked by yautía and green banana. These are just made from another company.
These are available in all major supermarkets in Puerto Rico… but I have also seen these in supermarkets in Miami.
If you rather make boiled yuca to eat with Cuban mojo, there’s also convenient yuca cut into pieces ready to boil. This is the kind I usually buy when I need to get my Cuban fix at home. At the Yoga Center we peel yucas. At home, I just boil the frozen stuff!!!!
