Recipes & Nutrition Analysis for Yams


When shopping for yams, chose those that are firm and free of spots and bruises.

Store yams in a cool, dark place where they are not contained in bags or near extreme temperatures.  If stored properly, they will keep well for 10 days.

It is best not to wrap yams in foil while cooking.  This method ensures the yams will bake rather than steam, and promotes their wonderful syrup-like flavor.
