Description
 
Attractive reddish-purple skin with a pure white interior, the Japanese “Murasaki” has a sweet, nutty flavor and slightly dry texture.

The variety is a versatile culinary ingredient that can be baked whole, peeled and roasted, boiled, mashed, even sliced or diced for a high-heat sauté. Sweet potatoes are very high in calcium, vitamin C and beneficial amino acids. Compared to a common sweet potato, the Murasaki is not as creamy dense, but does have a more full-bodied flavor.

Choose tubers that are relatively heavy with no scarring or soft, discolored areas. If kept dry and cold, Purple yams will remain fresh in a home refrigerator for 3 weeks.
