Recipe Notes

* There is much confusion between a yam and a sweet potato. Here in the United States, what you find at your grocery store..that is labeled a yam..is actually a sweet potato. Technically a yam, is a white tuber with little taste, that can only be found normally in ethic stores. We may call those big huge tubers at the store a yam, but they are a sweet potato. * For another variation use pumpkin pie spice instead of the cinnamon and nutmeg. It adds another dimension of flavor!
