HailRobonia: RexTalionis: I think Sweet Potatoes are South American in origin and yams are African in origin, so they shouldn't be the same at all.

Technically speaking, just about every yam we get here in the US is really a sweet potato (anything labelled "yam" is just a sweet potato). Yams are quite different. However, I have finally given up trying to convince people they are wrong when they call sweet potatoes yams*.

*obviously, I haven't.



Look, I yam what I yam, and that's all that I yam.

Professor Wormbog: Tumb tack: Professor Wormbog: i made a huge pot of sweet potato and red lentil curry earlier this week and have been enjoying the leftovers every day.

i include sweet potatoes in any roasted root veggie dishes i make.

sweet pots are in my regular, don't-need-a-grocery-list, go-to-in-my-head bundle of things to pick up every week.

You sound crunchy..

you sound soft and round.



Please, don't argue. I'm sure you are both delicious.

I treat yams and sweet potatoes the same insofar as I refuse to eat either.
