I've been looking for a basic recipe for candied yams for sometime. My search is now over! I boiled the potatoes until they were slightly tender. After they cooled, I peeled & cut them in to cubes. I then added all of the other ingredents, plus some vanilla, to a small pan until well blended; however, I cut the butter & sugar almost in half. Next, I placed the cubed potatoes and the sauce in a crockpot with a little cinnamon & nutmeg. When the potatoes were soft (not mushy) I added a handful of marshmellows. After about 10 minutes, I transferred the candied yams to a baking dish, topped the yams with more marshmellows, and broiled until the marshmellows were brown (this is why I cut back on the sugar b/c of the added marshmellows). I served the Candied Yams for Christmas dinner and my entire family LOVED them. My mom even said they were as good as hers when she used to make them for holiday dinners - now that's a compliment.
