  • Meanwhile, in another large saucepan, combine cornstarch, salt, and allspice. Stir in apple juice, raisins, and lemon juice. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Gently stir in pears and yams; heat through. Serve warm. Makes 8 servings.

Tips

Cook the yams and the sauce for Cider-Glazed Yams with Pears as directed; cover and refrigerate separately for up to 24 hours. To serve, stir the pears and cooked yams into the sauce; heat through. Be careful not to overcook because the yams may fall apart.
