Directions:
In an 8-quart heavy-bottom pot, heat oil to 350. Meanwhile, peel yucca with a sharp vegetable peeler. Using a mandoline or sharp knife, cut yucca crosswise into slices about 1/8-inch thick. In batches of 30, slide slices into oil one at a time. Fry about 3 minutes, or until golden brown around the edges, stirring occasionally to prevent clumping.

With a slotted spoon, transfer to paper towels. Sprinkle with salt before serving.
