Top | The Northwest Vegetarian Cookbook
(recipe, Debra Daniels-Zeller)
Though yams and sweet potatoes are normally associated with Southern cooking and they have a long growing season, some varieties can be grown in the Northwest. Denison Farms at the Corvallis farmers' market and Ayers Creek Farm at the Hillsdale farmers' market in Oregon grow and sell yams. If you don't have or don't like yams, use winter squash. Mair Farm-Taki in Yakima, Washington, sells fresh ginger at the University District market in Seattle during the late summer and early fall.
