Florence Mama's Candied Yams

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In an ungreased 2-quart baking dish place sweet potato slices, overlapping slightly and covering the dish. In a saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Stir in brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Cook until sugar is dissolved, then add the orange slices. Pour the mixture over the potatoes, covering the entire surface.
  2. Cover the dish tightly with foil. Bake 40 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork. Remove foil and bake 20 to 25 minutes more or until the top is golden brown. Let stand 15 minutes before serving. Makes 8 to 10 servings plus leftovers.

This recipe was bomb diggity!! My bestie does like yams but one serving usually sufices. He ate 4 servings!! It's amazing and I'm so glad you made this available online. Something about the carmelized oranges makes this stand out from the crowd. I usually use oj in my yams but the carmelization of the sugars in the oranges brings an intensity of flavor that just knocks it out of the park!

I found this recipe for candied yams in a BHG magazine a few years ago and tried it for Thanksgiving. My family won't eat yams cooked any other way. Frequently preparing this dish throughout the year. Thanks Tyler for sharing.Pat
