Yellow Yam - Creative Monday Blog Hop

      What a relief! Tropical Storm Ernesto is no longer a serious threat to Jamaica and I have reason to cheer about my country's performance at the London Olympics. Our top sprinter, Usain Bolt, is from the parish of Trelawny where a variety of yams abound!  Well, I like yellow yam a lot and enjoy it whether in soup or cooked on its own. Every week I eat some. First I peel off the skin and slice it up.  After that I put a teaspoon of salt in about a quart of water. When it boils up I put in the yam and allow it to cook for about 1 hour.  Below is a picture of  boiled yellow yam.

Is the Yellow Yam similar to sweet yams or sweet potatoes? If so, we call them camote here in the Philippines ... and I love camotes! It's supposedly ranked as one of nature's miraculous foods.

Cheers ... visiting from Creative Monday!

Hi Tito Eric,
There are a wide variety of yams but sweet potatoes are different. I also know and like sweet potatoes. Take care and have a good week.

Hello Judy. I love yams and sweet potatoes. The best of them all is the purple yam we call 'ube'. It's best mashed and served as filling for breads.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Hi Itin,
I am happy to hear from you. I note that you also love yams and sweet potatoes. The purple yam sounds interesting. I hope I get to have it some day. Take care and have a wonderful week.

I prefer white yam instead. I can only eat yellow yam when there is no option for white yam.
Wishing you a wonderful new week Judy..
