    I believe sweet potatoes and yams are the exact same thing.

    I personally have no taste for them at all.

    Several decades ago, when orange-fleshed sweet potatoes were introduced in the southern United States, producers and shippers desired to distinguish them from the more traditional, white-fleshed types. The African word nyami, referring to the starchy, edible root of the Dioscorea genus of plants, was adopted in its English form, yam. Yams in the U.S. are actually sweetpotatoes with relatively moist texture and orange flesh. Although the terms are generally used interchangeably, the U.S. Department of Agriculture requires that the label "yam" always be accompanied by "sweetpotato."

    they're good if you make them right..
    some recipes use all types of sugar, even marshmallows..i think that's kinda disgusting.

    i actually fixed some the other night though, i just cut up a yam into chunks, sprinkled it with a little maple syrup and spread on some butter, baked for 30 minutes, yummy yammy.
