Firstly, to find more about yams and other fruit and vegetables visit

The yam plant has been cultivated for thousands of years in Africa and Asia. It’s also grown in North America today.

Here’s how to get the best out of them.

Yams are an excellent source of fiber, potassium, vitamin C, and other nutrients. They’re also very versatile. You can eat them raw, baked, boiled, fried, mashed, or even made into soup.

Choose the Right Variety.

There are two main varieties of yams: sweet potatoes and regular yams. Sweet potatoes are sweeter than regular yams. If you prefer sweet potatoes, choose ones with smooth skin and bright orange flesh. Regular yams tend to be more fibrous and starchy. Look for those with smooth skin and yellowish flesh.

Prepare Them Ahead of Time.

You can prepare them ahead of time by peeling them first. Then cut them into cubes or slices. Put them in a baking dish and cover them with water. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit until tender. Drain off any excess liquid before serving.

Cook Them with Other Root Veggies.

If you want to make them taste even better, try cooking them with other root veggies. Carrots, sweet potatoes, parsnips, turnips, rutabagas, and celeriac are some examples.

Bake or Roast Them.

You can bake or roast yams just as you would any other root vegetable. Just cut off the ends and peel away the skin. Then slice them into wedges or cubes.
