Yams - Garnet or Jewel - Organic - 1 lb (approx. 2pcs)
Jewel & Garnet Yams – These have brownish-orange skins and bright orange interiors. While labeled yams, they are actually sweet potatoes and are even more common than the standard white-fleshed sweet potato. These varieties are a low-calorie, nutrient-dense food, packed with vitamin-A (more than carrots!). Sweet potatoes also contain high amounts of calcium, fiber, iron, and vitamin E.
Garnet yams have dark orange-red skin, which conceals bright orange flesh. They're even more moister than jewel or Beauregard yams, which makes them great for baking projects; they're the ideal yam for pie, mashed yam casserole, and nice and simple mashed yams. In addition to being sweet and flavourful, they retain their lovely orange hue even after baking
Storage: when storing, refrigeration should be avoided as it causes the yam to spoil faster. Garnet yams will keep up to four weeks when stored in a dark, dry, and cool location.
