THE MAIN DIFFERENCE between this and the white yam are: the skin of purple yam has an intense purple hue and the pulp has some purple speckles. These characteristics derive from the presence of antioxidants related to the prevention of cell aging. In cooking, the applications are similar to other tubers: it is often boiled and enjoyed in salads or mashes. Fun fact: during the week of Brazil’s Independence day, the municipality of Caapiranga, in the Amazon, promotes a Yam Festival to celebrate the harvest of this food. In the eighth edition of this festival, in 2015, the dispute between the two associations showcasing folk stories was won by the Cará Roxo group, which amasses five victories over the Cará Branco group.
