Sweet Potatoes! Sweet or Savory? OR Yams?

Do you like them prepared Sweet or Savory? Many people in the South make a sweet potato pie. Some make a sweet version of Baked Sweet Potatoes with brown sugar and marshmallows. Some people like to just baked them whole and use cinnamon butter once cut open to eat. What’s your favorite type?

So what’s the big difference between yams and sweet potatoes? Shape, price, taste, availability? Preference? There is a difference and they are not related! The Yam is paler, less sweet, tend to grow larger and narrower. The sweet potato is bright orange and used more frequently then Yams, in both sweet and savory dishes.

A savory sweet potato dish may be popular in your home? Some folks cube the sweet potatoes and boil them, drain, add in butter, cheese (like Gruyere/Jarlsberg) add onions, panko bread crumbs and baked. What is your favorite? Do you make any sweet or savory sweet potato dishes, do you like either? Will you bypass the whole yams, sweet potato idea? You may just like Creamed mashed potatoes? That’s a great tasting option!

In closing, I wish you Good Health.
