Yam or sweet potato?

I revised the reference card a tad, so here it is again. Please share. If you want to print out a bunch to laminate into wallet-sized favors for your Thanksgiving guests, here’s the PDF. And here are the gruesome details behind this card, if you really want to know.

    If it has bark-like skin it could also be taro. Also called yams by some.

    • So true. My local store has a bunch of yam-like things, many of them rough-skinned, too. And sometimes labeled yam. Such a mess. We have several kinds (cultivars?) of eddoe, and of course taro, too. I still need to actually cook something with those. Have you cooked with any of them?
