Japanese Yams have a dark, almost magenta colored skin and white flesh. They have a unique, creamy taste when baked. I love to make these in large batches and keep them in the refrigerator as a healthy dessert option. They are also great snack to take to the movies in a baggie!

I recently made a batch of these for my best friends wedding. I brought them to her suite, as she was getting ready for the big day. I was so happy I could provide a snack that would fuel her for the walk down the aisle without making her feel bloated or un-bride like.
