Qualities: Purple yams have greyish-brown skins and purple flesh, and their texture becomes soft like a potato when cooked. They have a sweet, nutty flavor and are used in a variety of dishes ranging from sweet to savory. What’s more, they are loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, all of which may benefit your health.
Common Use: Yams, in general, are a good source of beta carotene, although the purple variants contain less than orange variants. The purple yam is also relatively high in anthocyanin, an antioxidant that gives it its purple color. Purple sweet potatoes are rich in anthocyanins. As mentioned earlier, anthocyanins are the pigments that give red, purple, and blue fruits, plants and vegetables their rich coloring and provide anti-inflammatory benefits.
How to cook: fill a large stockpot with water and bring to a boil, add a pinch of salt and desired amount of pasta and return to a rolling boil, cook for 10 minutes or until desired texture. Separate the pasta gently with a fork during cooking to prevent clumping. Rinse it with cold water to firm up the texture.
Storage: keeps in a cool, dry, and dark location.
