Thanx for responding. My error. I had just seen several Inhames in recipes, called ‘Yams’. Please remove my comment.

It’s ok Mel. To be honest, for the longest time I thought yams were inhames, I’m sure many other people do as well.

Inhames are NOT what Americans know as Yams, they are TARO ROOT. Completely different tuber. Being Portuguese, I love Inhames. Thanx for the recipes though.
