I was in for a huge surprise in July when I stumbled on Yellow Yams in a grocery store in New York. To say that I was surprised is an understatement. I stood at the store, making a big spectacle of my findings that morning.
The drama became a beautiful delight to shoppers who watched as I photographed the staple food I knew from childhood. My friend, who I accompanied to the store laughed heartily at the drama unfolding before her eyes. Haha.
Well, who would blame me? I love yam and the YELLOW YAM was actually the SURPRISE of the day. So I felt a certain nostalgia within me as I looked intently in admiration. I occasionally find white yams in Denmark where I live, but never came across the yellow species.
So, you can imagine the huge surprise I got to find my favourite yellow yam in the United States. This is a scarce commodity in Denmark. And I have never seen yam displayed in such a big quantity in any store in Europe. They don’t come cheap either when you find them at all.
Yams and Plantains are native to Africa and some other countries like Jamaica. These delicious foodies are common foods in Nigeria.
If I had a way, I would have bought the entire yellow yams in that store and return with them to Denmark. Haha.
