"A yam a day keeps the diabetes away....."

REESE'S PEANUT BUTTER YAMS

1. Desired amount of yams, pre-baked. (small or medium work best)
2. 1-2 teaspoons of peanut butter or compliant nut (smooth or crunchy)
3. 1-2 teaspoons compliant gooey sweetner (I used native wildflower honey)
3. 1-2 generous dashes of Fall "pie" spices for each yam (nutmeg is good if you only want to use one spice.)
4. 1-2 generous dashes of Carob or Cocoa ( *totally optional - these yams are so satisfying you really will enjoy the texture and not miss the chocolate of a Reese's! However, I suggest carob because it is sweeter, not bitter.)

Cut open yams lengthwise into "boat" shapes and hollow them out. Place contents in bowl and mix thoroughly with peanut butter, sweetener and spices. Stuff yam skins. Add dash of carob or cocoa on top for garnish, if desired.
Serves however many people you baked a yam for.

YAM ON, MY FRIENDS!

Great! This recipe can generate other peanut butter/potato/sweetener delectables!! Thanks! In fact I have one already baked that I am going to "experiment" on RIGHT NOW for my afternoon snack!

This really begs the question "What are you calling a yam"?

In the USA we most often times confuse yam with sweet potato.

"Why the confusion?

In the United States, firm varieties of sweet potatoes were produced before soft varieties. When soft varieties were first grown commercially, there was a need to differentiate between the two. African slaves had already been calling the ‘soft’ sweet potatoes ‘yams’ because they resembled the yams in Africa. Thus, ‘soft’ sweet potatoes were referred to as ‘yams’ to distinguish them from the ‘firm’ varieties.

Today the U.S. Department of Agriculture requires labels with the term ‘yam’ to be accompanied by the term ‘sweet potato.’ Unless you specifically search for yams, which are usually found in an international market, you are probably eating sweet potatoes!"

ADDENDUM/ERRATA:    The measurements for nut butter and gooey sweetener are for each yam baked; not the collective amount of yams baked. Sorry.

Yes. This topic was covered in another thread, elsewhere, addressing the confusion. If I have offended any other Sweet Potatoes out there by regurgitating the signage at my local Kroger that stated: "Golden Yell Yams, 88 cents per pound" my profound apologies are extended to the Tuber Kingdom, and any users of "real" Coco Yams (as they call them in Africa.)

Stockade and public flagellation may be forthcoming for this flagrant trespass of terms. However; I heard my jury is good.

I asked that question earlier, and I think it was gulfcoastguy that answered that they were the same thing, or that all are technically sweet potatoes. My Swami lists both-  sweet potatoes a bennie and yams neutral. I assume that Dr. D had tested the African yam or that the difference could be determined by the shape. Some look rounded with light colored flesh (sweet potatoes), and some are elongated with darker flesh (yams)  Either way, the markets are as confused as we are.

That is a good description of sweet potatoes and yams, Averno.  It helps to know the difference especially since Thanksgiving is getting very close and people will be shopping.

Yams in the D'Adamo diets are not the sweet potatoes that grocery stores and people often call yams in the US.

The USDA definition is used.

Yams:

Sweet Potatoes:

In our markets the African Yams are either white,purple, slightly fuzzy, and long.

Averno - could you do us a favor sometime soon, and report if the African Yam is less sweet than the Sweet Potato? Then we would know if "Reese's African Peanut Butter Yams" recepie would work or not. African Yams are my avoid. By telling us the taste of one without the mixture, maybe another filling could be concocted.....

I agree. I completely ignore any reference to a "yam" in our groceries.
