All my life I have eaten russet potaotes. For the past severtal months, I've been using a temperature probe in the oven to get them to exactly 212°. Yesterday, my diabetes nurse asked me to switch to red potatoes and sweet potatoes bevaus ehtey have more fiber. I have a couple of questions.
- Can I cook them the same way as I have the russets?
- Is there a better way?
- Is there a difference between a sweet potatao and a yam? The grocery store had at least 2 bins labeled sweet potatoes and 2 more labeled yams. Which should I try?
