It's time to take your baking to a whole new level!!! While you can eat this gorgeous root just like you would a sweet potato, the real fun comes with the vast variety of desserts and other baked goods that you can make. A quick internet seach will being you so many options from purple sourdough bread, to our favorite, purple yam cake

Purple yams skins are edible, though some recipes recommend peeling them first. When cooking, purple sweet potatoes will take longer than regular sweet potatoes. You will need to bake them anywhere from 90 minutes to 2 hours at 350 F to make them pleasingly moist.

WATCH OUT though... If you're going to use this sweet potato in baked goods, you do need to be cautious about recipes that include baking soda. Combining the two ingredients may turn the potato's flesh green.
