HOW TO STORE

Pantry time shown is for storage at normal room temperature – if stored in cool (50-60°F) dark area, yams will last about 1 month. Store yams in a loosely covered bag to allow for air circulation. Do not refrigerate yams, as doing so can alter their taste and flavor during cooking.

HOW TO SELECT

Look for small to medium sweet yam, which are sweet and creamy. (The larger ones tend to be starchier.) The skin should be firm, smooth, and even-toned. The deeper the color of the yam, in general, the richer it is in the antioxidant beta-carotene.
