In Spanish-speaking areas, Eddoes are sometimes called malangas, but this name is also used for other plants in the Araceae family, including Xanthosoma spp. Yautias is a more specific term.
Eddoes is part of the general Portuguese classification cará or inhame, which, in addition to taro, also includes root vegetables of the genera Alocasia and Dioscorea. They are the most commonly eaten inhames/carás in the states of São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Espírito Santo and surrounding areas. They are also fairly common in northeastern Brazil, where they may be called batata (literally "potato"), but not as much as the true Colocasia yam. According to Brazilian folklore, the eddos best suited for cooking are those in which the area where the leaves are cut is a darker shade of pink, or at least pink.

Cooking Skills：The stickiness of taro has various health benefits. After peeling, the taro should not be washed for too long, otherwise a large amount of mucin and galactose will be washed away. When peeling taro, your fingers may feel itchy because of the needle-like crystals of calcium oxalate. It is recommended to scald the surface of the taro with hot water first, or wipe the skin with ginger to relieve itching. Larger taro is not easy to boil and is more commonly used as a medicinal material. Smaller taro is used as a vegetable and dessert. Taro can be widely used in different dishes. Taro can be used to make porridge and soup, and taro can be used to make cakes when ground into powder. When cooking taro, you should avoid adding too much vinegar or salt, as both will make the stickiness of the taro go away.
Notes：Raw taro is toxic and can irritate the throat and numb the mouth. Generally not edible. If taro is used as an external application, its outer skin should be completely peeled off first, otherwise the skin may fester.
Handling them may cause some skin irritation, but it’s never happened in our experience.
