SWEET POTATOES: THE BASICS
Sweet potatoes are a "root vegetable". Only two varieties are widely grown, the Beauregard and the garnet. The Beauregard can be stored for long periods and so is less expensive, usually these are labeled "sweet potatoes". The garnet is more perishable and more expensive but it's my favorite, the flesh is more orange, the flavor more sweet. In the U.S., chances are that what people call "yams" and even what supermarkets label "yams" are really sweet potatoes. A nearby international grocery carries real yams from Africa, a staple food there; one year I cooked them side by side, just for fun, see Food Experiments: Meet the Yam Man. But farmers markets and CSAs are bringing new sweet potatoes to the market. Saveur has a great photo gallery of different varieties, you might enjoy Sixteen Shades of Sweet.
