Recipe Tip

Sweet potatoes are found in two varieties. A pale-skinned variety and a darker-skinned variety sometimes incorrectly called a yam. Pale sweet potatoes have a thin yellow skin and pale yellow flesh. They are not sweet and moist like the darker orange-skinned variety which has orange flesh.
