As for the recipe, well... there isn't one. It's more like an experiment. For years and years and years, I've always said that sweet potatoes are my favorite food. Well, after going to Trax Farms, I saw two piles of sweet potatoes and yams. The ones I thought were sweet potatoes were actually labeled yams. I was distraught. I bought one of each and decided to have a taste test to see which one I preferred. I did a little research and the orange one is the yam... the yellow one is the sweet potato. I was surprised and upset because I hate the name yam, but i guess that's what I like better. It's so much sweeter than a sweet potato and a lot less starchy. The S.P. reminded me of a regular baked potato. So if you ever get confused about these two, here's some helpful information. And if you don't care which one you are eating, then ignore this. haha I pretty much had a photo shoot with them. My cat was pissed because I had to move her off the table, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
A tropical American vine (Ipomoea batatas) having rose-violet or pale pink, funnel-shaped flowers, and cultivated for its fleshy tuberous orange root.
The pale sweet potato has a thin, light yellow skin and a pale yellow flesh. Its flavor is not sweet and after being cooked, the pale sweet potato is dry and crumbly, much like a white baking potato.
