Sweet potatoes are the roots or tubes of a vine-like plant; it is a native of tropical climate, but it is grown in states as far north as New York. The delicious yams of the southern states and the West Indies are made into many attractive foods. The food value of the sweet potato is closely allied to that of the white potato, but it contains from 4 to 10 per cent. sugar, where the ordinary white potato has no sugar. And, then, too, this common vegetable will provide a variety of delectable dishes.
