tpia, have you tasted Tiv yam before? i don't know how and why but the yam is really sweet. nothing like it!!!

i had to pour sugar when cooking yam to make it taste like tiv yam. . . there used to be tiv yam market in the west. oh that yam na helele i no fit talk o.

the yams around here taste like chalk, so hard and could choke if you are not careful.

Tiv yam is really soft and sweet. i used to think they soak the yam in sugar before planting.

Tpia, i think it is only the Tiv (Gboko) or those from Benue that have that specie?. i don't know if the yam could come out sweet if planted in other area. have you ever seen Tiv heap for planting yam? shocked shocked shocked the heap is soooooooooooooo huge grin. the Tivs in my school then don't do the huge heap thing on our agric farms. but if you go to their home state, that heap na wah. . . they don't play with the heap for planting yams.

yes some yams are sweet but the Tiv yam is special to be honest grin

~First i've read about Tiv Yam!! - Infact i had to google it grin i thought all yams were pretty much the same!!

~I have eaten regular Yam w/ Stew but yet to try Tiv Yam,if its as sweet as you say it is,then its defo worth trying!!

~How do you tell the difference between a regular yam & Tiv Yam tho? undecided I'll prolly ask this Niaja Lady who sells African food stuff . .
