The Louisiana Sweet Potato Commission is here to represent Louisiana growers, shippers, and processors. Sweet Potatoes from Louisiana are usually referred to as Yams. Louisiana's unique climate and soil conditions are ideal for growing a naturally sweeter and more flavorful sweet potato. Come stop by Booth 3764 and taste one of our sweet potato dishes and visit www.sweetpotato.org for more delicious sweet potato recipes. The Louisiana sweet potato can simply be baked, or you can transform it into practically anything-a main course, a soup, a salad, or dessert. Louisiana sweet potatoes can also be used as a healthful substitute to improve your regular cake recipe by substituting half the butter or other fats with an equal amount of mashed or pureed sweet potato. Yam Right thats good!
