Fresh Yams- Imported Weekly from Africa

Yam is a starchy tuber vegetable, native to Africa. It is often referred to as African Yam to differentiate the term ‘Yam’ from what Americans use to describe soft sweet potatoes. 

True Yams have pale white flesh, and bark like skin. They are highly nutritious, providing a source of fibre, potassium and antioxidants. 

Yams are often used to make Pounded Yam, a popular Afircan dish which resembles mashed potatoes but is heavier. They can also be used to make simple Fried Yam, which can be eaten as a snack or as a side dish to accompany other African dishes. 

Best stored at room temperature
