Candied Yams

Believe it or not folks, this is  my first time ever making candied yams, and no, they are not just for Thanksgiving

Seeing that they are just for my husband and me, I prepared a small pan. You could adjust the quantities if you so desire. This dish is super easy, yet scrumptious!!

  • 1 large sweet potato, cubed (2 – 3 cups)
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp white sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg (optional)

  1. Place potatoes in a pot of water and partially cook (about 5 minutes) 
  2. Drain potatoes and assemble in a greased baking pan
  3. Combine remaining ingredients in a saucepan and simmer on medium heat until it begins to thicken. 
  4. Cover potatoes with mixture and bake for about 30 minutes or until potatoes are done.
