This is the latest candied yam recipe. Slightly healthier than previous iterations. A must have at Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.
Bake 4 pounds (4 large) orange yams (sweet potatoes) at 350F until soft and the skins are “loose” – about 90 minutes. Let cool and peel skins off. Cut into 1 1/2″ disks. Arrange tightly into a 9″ square baking dish. Brush a generous amount of the bourbon brown sugar glaze and bake at 325 for 30-40 minutes. Brush on some more glaze and bake another 20 minutes. If you want to crisp up the top you can brush on more glaze and put under the broiler for a few minutes. Serve warm.
Bourbon Brown Sugar Glaze (approximate)
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 T bourbon
1/2 tsp vanilla
Put all ingredients in a small sauce pan and bring to a boil. The butter and brown sugar should blend together into a nice thick glaze.
