My husband luuuuuvs yams of all kinds. He will bake them and eat them straight out of the skin. Which is awesome because that's the healthiest way to eat them! I like peeling them and baking them with herbs or brown sugar and butter. We recently came across these Stokes Purple Sweet Potatoes at our local grocery store and they are BOMB! They're organic and sweet and wonderful. We had them for dinner the other day with a few other veggies tossed in. Try them if you get a chance, you won't be disappointed!
