Garnet yams are slender, ovate and cylindrical in shape, tapering at the ends. Their rough skin, a dusty brown-maroon color, is the source of inspiration for Garnet yam’s namesake. When cooked the interior flesh is golden orange, starchy and moister than other yam varieties. Its flavor sweet with a savory earthiness will be at its sweetest when roasted, which allows the sugars of the yam to caramelize slowly. In addition to the tubers, the leaves of the Garnet yam plant are edible as well, offering both nutrients and a flavor similar to that of spinach.
Garnet yams are available year-round with a peak season during the fall and winter months.
The Garnet yam is, in fact, not a true yam. It is a sweet potato that lost its identity to an American labeling system that forced the naming of yellow-orange fleshed sweet potatoes to include yam in their identification. Today the USDA requires that all yams also be labeled as sweet potatoes when sold. To further add to the naming complications neither true yams or sweet potatoes are botanically potatoes at all. The Garnet yam "sweet potato" is a root vegetable of the Convolvulaceae family and botanically known as a part of Ipomoea batatas. It is the storage organ of the plant, containing nutrients and carbohydrates which sustain its above ground shoots, vines, foliage and flowers.
