Did you know that when you buy a “yam” it is actually a sweet potato? A jewel sweet potato to be precise. It is very uncommon to find a true yam at your local grocery store. They are native to Africa (among other regions) and have a white, purple or reddish flesh. The USDA started calling the orange sweet potatoes “yams” to avoid confusion with the lighter fleshed variety.
