What is Yakiimo?Sweet potatoes?

In the past, I saw a lot of mobile sales wagons handling roasted sweet potatos, especially during winter.
They baked sweet potatoes in kind of stone ovens set up on small trucks. They smells quite nice.
Unfortunately, I haven’t seen them much recently but still love Yakiimo.

I also love set up a charcoal fire. Now we happen to face the epidemic of COVID19. It is a good chance to make charcoal fire and bake sweet potatoes!
So, I did it!

Just wrap a sweet potato in foil and put it on a net over a charcoal fire.
Rotate it as not to burn. Cook until it gets soft.
Eating roasted potatoes is nothing better.
