Sweet Potato Recipes

Sweet potatoes and potatoes are as closely related as onions and asparagus—in the same botanical order, different families. Sweet potatoes are true root vegetables, an enlarged section of the root used by the plant to store energy, while potatoes are stem tubers, formed from the stem of the plant.
