Hi Storm, You most certainly can use fresh cassava for the recipe instead of the packaged grated type. However it must be prepared correctly or it can be toxic. Allow the peeled root to steep in water, and then discard the water as it contains toxins. If using fresh cassava, remove skin and grate. If frozen, the skin would have been removed. Just grate finely. Squeeze as much of the juice out of the grated cassava. You may have to do this a 3-4 times. Discard the juice. You can use a large cheese cloth to help you squeeze out the moisture. The weight of the cassava after all the juice is squeezed out should be about 11/2 to 2 pounds. This will be super hard work, to grate and then squeeze the liquid out. Also the texture of the cake will not be the same as that when made using de-hydrated grated cassava.
