Recipe Tips

Although sweet potatoes and yams are similar in many ways, and therefore often confused with one another, they are different plant species. Yams may be substituted for sweet potatoes in most recipes.

This has been my favorite yam dish for quite a few years. I noticed that it's been changed since I first got it. I still use 3 small Granny Smith apples and the rind and all of the juice from one orange.

I fixed this for Thanksgiving. It was colorful, easy to prepare, and had a good tangy taste. I plan to add it to my regular list of side dishes.
