Yams
See also Sweet Potatoes

THE BASICS
Yams are thick tubers popular in South and Central America, the West Indies and parts of Asia and Africa. While sweet potatoes and yams are from different plant species, they are similar and often confused. In the southern U.S., sweet potatoes are often called yams. In addition, canned sweet potatoes are frequently labeled yams. True yams, however, are not widely marketed and are seldom grown in the United States. [read more] - Source Epicurious Dictionary

Posting here for my contest entry! :)

Your favorite vegetable: Kabocha squash! Something about it's mix of acorn squash and pumpkin I just loveeeeeeeeee! I can't get enough of it!

Your least favorite vegetable: Frozen peas. Blech!

A vegetable you've never tried but would like to: leeks and Satoimo (Japanese purple sweet potato!)

What's the hardest thing about getting vegetables onto the table?
Deciding which one to make! Seriously!

As far as recipes, this is the first one I used on kabocha squash and I'e been SMITTEN ever since:

Thanks :)

So funny to see the comment above as I was just about to mention the lack of kabocha recipes on such a wonderful veggie site. I love to make kabocha tots (recipe on eatingbirdfood.com) and kabocha risotto. Yummmmm! I have a half a squash left over and think I will use the recipe above with my cousin's hand tapped maple syrup tomorrow night. Anyway, thanks for a great site, and for anyone who sees this, trust me, get out there and try yourselves a kabocha!!!!
