do the skins of sweet potatos or yams have significant nutrition value? If thye do, I'll keep eating them. If not, they are going in the trash. :)

They contain fiber and usually all of the good stuff is in the skins.

that's the rumors i've heard since i was little, but I wanted to make sure it wasn't just my mom's tale to get me to eat the whole thing.

If I shred the skins like mashed potatoes, I'm sure thye will taste better.

Hot sauce, makes it all taste good.

I always eat the skin. I like the taste though, so its no big deal.

hey Mean Green, throw some thick wedges of sweet potato on a foreman grill. Sprinkle with italian season,red wine vinegar,salt,pepper and tobasco sauce. Its a great post workout meal with no fat.
