Cassava Root

In Bidayuh we call it Banuak or Ubi in Malay. It's full carbohydrate and very filling to eat beside its very tasty. There are few ways it can be cooked

1. Grill
2. Fry in hot cooking oil
3. Boil

Many more other ways that i don't know - but this is how it looks after boiled

An interesting inner layer of the root skin is almost red in color. When the root is still on the ground alive with the stem no bacteria or living creatures are attacking it. What is the secret to protect the inner flesh?
