Sweet potatoes are orange or white and both can be used in the same way. The white ones, in our experience, are sweeter. Although the name suggests otherwise sweet potatoes do not belong to the potato family. Sweet potatoes contain much more sugar, nutrients and starch. It is a flexible veg. The good news is you don’t have to peel it, just clean the peel with a brush. You can prepare it salty, roasted with curry and herbs for instance with coconut milk. Sweet potatoes can be used for desserts too but you’ll have to peel it first! Also great as a baby snack in form of puree.
