Sweet Potato vs. Yam: Useful Info

29 May

As for the most recent blog, I pointed out that what are often marketed as "yams" in the USA are actually properly called sweet potatoes.

The question arose, though, of what a yam exactly is.

Not quite sure myself and only vaguely possessing the skills necessary to differentiate and explain the two, I went on a hunt for information and came back with an important link.

Just click the link to learn more.

This link is to a blog that has additional links.

This link leads to a .pdf on sweet potato awareness. It may take a while to download on a slower connection, so you’ve been warned.

I hope this helps!

    We still have just a few sweet potatoes left from our garden last fall.
