Is it a yam or is it a sweet potato? Hilah settles this age-old Thanksgiving table debate and shows you some cooking methods for sweet potatoes. In most parts of the U.S., stores will market Sweet Potatoes as YAMS. That’s right. You’ve been lied to.
Or maybe you already knew the difference. If you did, you deserve bragging rights for your food knowldege.
Here’s an actual Yam:
It’s white, hairy, and totally different from the orange sweet potato we’re used to. That’s not to say that Yams don’t taste good, they’re great! But if you’re expecting that orange gold for a sweet casserole or fries, you’ll be looking for a sweet potato. AKA the orange alternative.
