Expert Tips

Many varieties of sweet potatoes are available, but a true yam is not available in our supermarkets. The variety of sweet potatoes with dark orange skin is often labeled as "yams." The very light-colored sweet potatoes are not as sweet and are drier than the darker-skin ones. We like the darker-skin sweet potatoes (or "yams")for this dish because they not only make a richer colored dish but also a tastier, sweeter one.

While the turkey roasts in the oven, cook this Thanksgiving favorite in the cooker. If your home is this year's holiday gathering spot for family and friends, you can double or triple this recipe and cook it in a 5- to 6-quart cooker. And it will stay warm for second helpings.
