Potatoes, Sweet

Sweet potatoes have either a dry light yellow or moist deep yellow or orange flesh.  The darker colored sweet potatoes are sometimes called yams, which is a misnomer, as true yams are grown only in the tropics.  We enjoy sweet potatoes baked, in roasted vegetable dishes, and in curries.  Select potatoes that are firm and free of mold spots.  A 100 gram (3-1/2 oz.) serving of sweet potatoes has over twice the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) of vitamin A.  See nutritional chart below.
