There are a bag of them on the kitchen counter. They came from the free food store, but I don't know what they are. I suppose they might be a type of potato. I figure if somebody knows what they are called, I can look up a recipe for them. Thanks.

Yam maybe? idk
What is this free food store you speak of?

Looks like a light sweet potato, but without a size reference it's hard to really know.

@EVO: @Bigandtasty:

It's a store that people and companies donate food to. Food for free. Roommates got racks of ribs tonight too along with a bunch of other stuff.

@DarknessMyOldFriend: That's a normal sized jar for canned goods next to it.

I would too say sweet potato.

Cut it open and if it's bright orange and has the shape, feel and smell of a potato, then that's what it is.

It looks like an abomination of a potato to me. Then again, I'm part Irish, so only the fullest, fattest potatoes are accepted by me.

Not all sweet potatoes are orange inside.

White sweet potato seems most likely to me.

I suggest food ninjaing that thing before it wakes up and looks for an orifice to nest in.

Looks like a copy of Atlas Shrugged to me.

@NathHaw: It's a yam, sir. Trust me; I've taken classes for this sort of thing.

There's a place I can get free sweet potato? I'm in.

I believe he means a Food Bank when it comes to the "free food store." It's usually a charitable organization that gives food to families with difficulty purchasing food themselves.

@Catarrhal: Thanks. I'll let everybody know and look up some way to cook it.
