How to prepare

Purple sweet potatoes (sometimes wrongly called purple yams) are fun to cook with and can be used in many of the same ways as the more familiar orange or white sweet potatoes. Although some varieties have a white skin, cutting open one of the varieties will reveal their violet surprise. They are popular in Asian and Latin cuisines. They add a brilliant color to food and require only a few adjustments to cook.
