Candied Sweet Potatoes are good....Some recipes start with raw potato --Others with baked, cooled, and sliced. Orange juice, brown sugar, and butter are in some recipes.....Orange zest on top.

Brown Sugar-Glazed Sweet Potatoes with Marshmallows Recipe at Epicurious.com
I have made these for years and people that hate sweet potatoes love these. Don't panic when the mix in the potatoes seems like it's not enough because when they bake the natural caramelizing comes out.

In the US, the yellow fleshed sweet potato is usually called a "yam" but is actually a totally different vegetable from the true yam. There are several different varieties of yams grown in Latin America, Africa and Asia.

The most common one in Central America is called "ñame". Here's info and photos: http://fichas.infojardin.com/hortali...-dioscorea.htm.

It's usually prepared by boiling, mashing, or roasting and is also used in soups and stews.
