Y is for Yams

Y is for Yams sweet potatoes that is.  At least here in SE Texas.  Basically everyone calls the same thing either or.  Like prawns and shrimp.  But realistically, they are actually slightly different.  I'm talking about those long, fat-in-the-middle, reddish-orange potatoes that sometimes look like they have paw paw whiskers growing out the sides of them. 

And tonight I give you Jesse Ruth's Sweet Potato Pie recipe.So hold on to your britches 'cause you'll have to let them out after you have all of this you want.

Three cups of cooked, mashed sweet potatoes.
Two cups of sugar.
3 eggs
2 Tablespoons Butter
1 1/2 teaspoon Allspice
1 Cup buttermilk (the real deal, not reduced fat)
1 teaspoon baking soda 
1 teaspoon baking powder

Bake in two 9" unbaked pie crusts.  Probably at 350 degrees until lightly browned and firm in the middle.  


  1. this looks delicious! I'm going to have to make these sometime! I'm the only one in the family that likes yams, so more for me :)

    One more letter!!


  2. Thanks for stoping by my blog earlier! I love sweet potato pie and even won the pie contest at our county fair with my grandmama's recipe. I'll have to try your recipe sometime!

  3. Looks tasty. I always considered yams and sweet potatoes the same thing.
