Yes, I cooked Canna in a slow cooker with a nice piece of venison roast and both I and my husband thought the Canna was pretty darn yucky. I wanted to like it because it grows well here, but nope, it was yucky.

that was my experience, too. That's why I wanted to speak to someone... who may know more than me. The stuff I found on the net wasn't really helpful, they all say to use it like potato (Aehm, NO).
I wonder if they all just copy text from each other...
Thanks
