Sweet potatoes are tubers
commonly available in two
varieties. One has light skin and
pale flesh; the other has reddish
skin and vibrant orange flesh.
Yams are tubers native to Asia
and Africa. The “yams” at the
grocery store are most likely
orange-flesh sweet potatoes,
which are often mislabeled
in the United States. For this
recipe, look for small to medium
orange-flesh sweet potatoes.
