Sweet Potato Pie

Sweet potato pie recipes have been handed down from generation to generation, with recipes differing from family to family. Historians believe the first pies came about in Europe in the 16th century and were later introduced in West Africa, where yams were already popular. As early as the colonial years in the American South, sweet potatoes were embraced by enslaved Africans, as it resembled the yams of their homelands.
