Japanese "Chestnut" Yam (2 lb)
Japanese Chestnut Yam (Kanto 85) is a special new Japanese sweet potato varietal that has a nutty flavor reminiscent of roasted chestnuts. Originated in the Kanto region, it's starchier, firmer texture and rich sweetness makes them one of the most popular variety in Japan these days. They cut to reveal an outer purple rim framing a pale yellow core with specks of violet. Their low fiber texture makes them perfect for desserts or just simply roasted and enjoy as is even with the skin on.
