Fact of the Day: Yam Potato

Sweet potatoes are sometimes called yams despite not being true yams. While they do look similar to yams, they aren't even closely related.

I bought yams thinking they were my sweet potato but there was a distinct difference in the taste. I much prefer the sweet potato.
