yam / sweet potato

Sweet Pea | Oct 24, 2004 05:23 PM

Potato is something I am advised to avoid (no not Atkins, mild allergy) so I eat sweet potato, which I love. But I thought it was a yam and therefore not a potato. Is a yam the same thing as a sweet potato? I've heard there is a difference but no one seems to know what it is and why do I not see yams for sale at the store (not talking about canned stuff)? Thanks.
