History of Iron Stick Yam

Before the Tang dynasty,it basically came from the wild species of Dioscorea opposita.In the Song Dynasty,D.opposita began to be cultivated,but Chinese medical practitioners claimed that the wild species was better than the cultivated one.After the Ming and Qing Dynasties,yam was mostly from cultivated resources.As the species quality changed,the authentic producing area of Dioscorea opposite was recognized to be in Huaiqing,Henan province,since the Ming and Qing Dynasties.Through long-term cultivation,the species produced in Huaiqing began to differentiate and the Chinese medicinal experts of successive ages considered that the product quality of yam is excellent and if it revealed the features of”white,thin,solid quality”,that was the best,and this is consistent with the species called”Tiegun (iron stick)” Diascorea opposita cultivated by Huaiqing farmers.

Usage of Iron Stick Yam

Iron Stick Yam tuber can be eaten raw, while other yams must be cooked before consumption (due to harmful substances in the raw state). In Japanese cuisine, it is eaten raw and grated, after only a relatively minimal preparation: the whole tubers are briefly soaked in a vinegar-water solution, to neutralize irritant oxalate crystals found in their skin. The raw vegetable is starchy and bland, mucilaginous when grated, and may be eaten plain as a side dish, or added to noodles. It is used in the Japanese noodle dish tororo udon/soba and as a binding agent in the batter of okonomiyaki. The grated yam is known as tororo (in Japanese). In tororo udon/soba, the tororo is mixed with other ingredients that typically include tsuyu broth (dashi), wasabi, and green onions.
