Candied Yams

Time: 1 hour

Once you make these yams, they will always be one of your sides… enjoy with Sheryl Crow & Sting.

Music Selection: Sheryl Crow & Sting – Always On Your Side


1 large yam

¼ cup butter, melted

½ cup brown sugar

3 Tbsp orange juice

1 tsp vanilla

½ tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp allspice

Dash nutmeg


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Peel and slice yams about ½ inch slices (I some times cut them in half).

In bowl, mix the melted butter, sugar, OJ, vanilla and spices. Add in the yams and mix well.

Pour into a 9 x 13 baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes, then flip the potatoes. Bake another 10 -15 minutes, until most of the moisture is gone, but they are not burning. Serve as a side to Stuffed Grilled Porkloin or Ta-Dah Turkey.
