   Other names for taro are dasheen, elephant’s ear, nampi, arum lily,
   cocoyam, yautia, malagna, eddo and kolokassi.  Asiatic people steam,
   boil or stew taro.  Hawaiians make poi from it and also stew the
   leaves.
   
   Peel the taro.  Soak in cold water until ready to cook. Boil in water
   to cover, or steam in a bamboo steamer.  Serve plain as you would
   boiled potato.
   
   To season taro, drain and cut into cubes while still hot.  Combine
   with chard and garlic.  Heat a wok or skillet with just enough
   vegetable oil to coat the bottom.  Stir-fry taro mixture for 1
   minute. Serve hot or cold with dipping sauce if desired.
