Sylvia, young and determined received her beautician license at night while attending junior high school during the day.

In 1944, Sylvia married Herbert and started her journey towards a brighter future. Harlem called, and Sylvia answered, as she became a waitress at Johnson's luncheonette.

The than small luncheonette consisted of a counter and a few booths, has now flourished into a family owned enterprise which consist of Sylvia's Restaurant in Harlem, Sylvia's Also, a full- service catering hall, Sylvia's Catering Corp., a nation-wide line of Sylvia's Food Products, two deliciously amazing cookbooks, and ATOC, Inc.

To-date there are three generations of the Woods family working tirelessly, to ensure that their family’s business continues to make strides over the next forty-three years. Sylvia's Yams in Light Syrup are straight from Sylvia's childhood and restaurant; bringing flavorful cooking to every kitchen.

These yams were to be a welcome addition to my diet as a better, heathier choice. They fell extremely short of my expectations due to their mushiness. It seems as though these may have been cooked to be used for baby food. Each can has about 1/4 sweet potato silt and many cans are dented. This is a DO NOT BUY!

We ordered them for needy families. Sent them to the food pantry and got a call today that a lot of the cans are badly dented and they are all expired.

We use these to make baby food and a "Sweet potato casserole" for Thanksgiving. They were just fine. We rinse them off before using them in the baby food to try to help a little with the extra sugar from the packing syrup. Our sweet potato casserole calls for pureeing the yams. I really haven't tried them any other way so, for our purposes, these yams are great and are the best deal I could find for shipping yams.
