Sweet potatoe is white inside & darker outside (the larger one shown) and harder consistency as for the yam is yellow-orange inside & lighter outide ( the smaller one shown) and is softer and tends to be stringy in nature.

ANITA CALPITO...Nope, they're not the same thing, at all. I've known this, for years. Yams don't grow here! They only grow in places, like Africa, Asia, Central and South America, and Oceania. So, what people, here, in the USA call Yams, are actually Sweet Taters! I love Sweet Tater Pie! :)

Can yams be cooked the same way as potatoes or sweet potatoes? I didn't know about the history of yams before.

Actually not all yams have yellow flesh. We grow many types of yams in Jamaica. The one with the yellow flesh we call yellow yam. We also grow white yam,negro yam. renta yam and many others which have white or off-white flesh.I love them.
