Beverly - yams actually are sweet potatoes, they are just called yams even though real yams are a different vegetable altogether, as least, that's what I and another person on here came up with at Thanksgiving. You can look up the differences online. There was a question about this for Thanksgiving on one of Alicia's blogs. You can easily find the information on Wikipedia, or I believe one person wrote that Alton Brown (very well known chef if you don't know who he is) has a video on youtube where he talks about the difference, too (being no difference in the U.S., we just incorrectly named one yam to distinguish it from the white sweet potato)
