Flavored with bacon and thyme, mashed sweet potatoes make a savory addition to any meal.
Two varieties of sweet potatoes are commercially grown in the U.S., one with light yellow skin and pale yellow flesh and a darker-skinned variety with dark orange flesh. The darker of the two is often confused with yams of Africa and Central and South America.
Store sweet potatoes in a cool, dark, dry place to keep them fresh.
