description

There are serveral varieties of yam. Purple yam is my favourite with an unassuming brownish grey skin revealing lavender purple flesh that turns violet when cooked. They are slightly sweet, not too starchy with an earthy, nuttiness that can be used in both savoury and sweet dishes. Store in a cool, dark and dry place rather than the fridge.
