  4. I believe Americans call these yams.
    Anyhow, I really hate it when people prepare sweet potatoes like the regular potatoes. That doesn't taste good. 'Cause, you know, these are sweet and on regular potatoes you put salt.
    So, in the end, you have something that should taste sweet with salt on it. :D
