Step 2 - Prepare the Cocoyams
Peel the Cocoyams and remove any black spots or discolouration on the flesh. Rinse Cocoyams (they will feel slimy when rinsed), and then chop into chunky cubes. Place the cubed Cocoyams in a pot and add enough water to cover the Cocoyams. Add salt to taste. Bring to boil over medium to high heat, and then reduce heat to medium and let cook until soft. For chunky cubes such as in the picture above, the Cocoyams should be soft in 15 - 20 minutes. Take off the heat, drain and set aside.
