Garnet vs Jewel Yams

  • b

All the earlier sweet potato posts made me hungry. Now I am the proud owner of a garnet yam and a jewel yam.

I know these are just 2 different varieties of the same tuber but figured I'd ask if anyone here knows of any distinctions betweenn the two.

Specifically, is there a type of dish or preparation that you think benefits from say a garnet over a jewel?

  1. They are pretty interchangeable in my experience, not like the difference from a dryer sweet potato.
