The Gist of Cassava

The Gist of Cassava

It’s a plant!


Cassava came to my attention for two reasons, recently.

One: Okay I forget but it stuck in my head because I used a similar word, Kassavar, in my short CYOA The Night of the Wolf and the Sellsword.

Two: It gets mentioned in the TV show Death In Paradise.

So when it came to Gist time and I realised it was an angiosperm like the humble Strawberry, it seemed a fitting theme. I’ve never eaten Cassava and never will because of the FACTS.
