Yams – A to Z Blogging Challenge

One of my very favorite vegetables to eat is yams. Writing about them makes me want to put aside this blog, head for the kitchen and cut some up as fries. I think I’ll hold off until another time and stick to blogging.

I prefer yams over white potatoes. My favorite way to eat them is as baked fries. I cut the yams up, toss them in healthy oil and bake them in the oven up to 25 minutes. They go really good with sautéed spinach or roasted asparagus. For me they are good with everything.

     I also love pie made from yams. My Mother made the best pie. I can’t make a pie as good as she did and I haven’t found anyone that could.

The way I least like yams fixed is candied. Sugaring them up overpowers the wonderful sweet taste that is already built-in them. If you want something that sweet, eat a piece of Pecan pie. Yams are healthier when they are minimally altered.

Do you like yams? What’s your favorite way to eat them?

  1. I’m not a fan of yams. They are pretty good as yam french fries, but the candied yams are not my favorite at all. My mom loves them though. Thanks for posting.

    • Jenn,
      Thanks for visiting my blog. I checked out your blog and really liked it. I learned about Yellowstone Park–I didn’t know a thing before.
      Yams are delicious. I had some for dinner today.
      Blessings
      Emma
