It was many years before I knew the difference between sweet potatoes and yams. I still am not certain of any real difference except the color; one being a brighter orange color than the other. Like pumpkin, I like either one.
A baked sweet potato is about the simplest way I know to fix these delicious vegetables that can also be used to make desserts. And, with a microwave it is even simpler! Just wash the potato, pierce it in a couple of places with a fork and either wrap in foil for the oven or place on a paper plate and cover with a paper towel for the microwave.
