Yam or Sweet Potato? Continued

I am so lucky that one of my readers, Colin Purrington, shared one of his detailed posts with me about what is a sweet potato and what is a yam and how to tell them apart. After pouring over his highly informative charts and history, I must agree with Laurie David that in spite of the label at the grocery store calling those yummy tubers sweet potatoes I blogged about (see My New Favorite Thing), they were in fact yams.

Here's is definitive link.

Thank you, Colin and Laurie!
