Questions & Replies
Are these real yams or sweet potatoes? I ask because I heard that the US sometimes call sweet potatoes yams. Re Marsh Mallows, are these sweets, found next mini, jelly babies & chocolate or do they come without sugar in the US? (In which case I may be able to find some). If they are sweets, with what would this dish normally be served (mains/sides)? Thanks.
