Expert Tips

A variety of sweet potatoes with dark orange skin is often labeled as "yam," in the supermarket. In the Betty Crocker test kitchens, the darker sweet potatoes (or "yams") are a favorite for this dish. The very light-colored sweet potatoes are not as sweet and are drier than the darker-skinned ones.
