Hi, I've looked in the archives, and noticed a few Yam threads, but they almost all ended up talking about the American Sweet Potato -- not the same critter at all.
So, I want to ask,, does anyone here eat real yams? I'm most interested in whether or not anyone in North America eats yams, since they tend to be difficult to get, but to me they taste extremely good, and a lot more neutral-flavored than sweet potatoes.
I became rather enamored with this plant from my time in west Africa, especially because dry-fried it makes something similar tasting to french fries, except they can be stored all day without getting soggy, and when cooked properly have very little fat.
Hmm, on the general topic of non-standard root plants, does anyone here eat taro as their starch (apart from in natural tapioca)? I've just located a store near me that sells bulk taro flour, and I'm about to experiment with taro breads and other recipes.
Any experiences or suggestions with either of these plants (and their products), in relation to both bodybuilding nutrition and general healthy cooking, would be appreciated.
