  1. Place yams in a large saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook 30 minutes, or until tender but firm. Drain, peel, and cut into 1/3 inch thick slices.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  3. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter with the cornstarch and brown sugar. Mix in the apple juice, lemon juice, cinnamon, and allspice.
  4. Alternate layers of yams and apples in the prepared baking dish. Pour the apple juice mixture over the layers.
  5. Cover, and bake 1 hour in the preheated oven. Remove cover, and continue baking 30 minutes. Baste frequently with the juices from the pan to prevent drying.

Whoo Hoo! VERY delicious! notes: watch out for soaked yams: yams will peel a lot nicer if you don't leave them soaking in the "cold bath"... over-done sauce: keep your eye on the sauce or it turns into syrup--also, reduce the sweetness of the sauce as the yams are very, very good by themselves... crispy apples: don't over-microwave the apples because the slightly crunchy texture is such a nice surprise in this predictably Orange dish. Even people who had never seen apples with yams were very impressed: I should have made more!!

I actually decreased the apple juice by 1/2 cup, added 1/4 cup more brown sugar and 1 tsp more of cornstarch and it worked great. Slice the apples thick, or they'll be done way before the yams!

I made this for Thanksgiving, and it was a big hit -- even with the kids! The apples were a great addition. Per another reviewer's suggestion, I added minced ginger and a little Grand Marnier, and I highly recommend it. I'll be making this again for Christmas thanks to multiple requests!

This was an interesting combination of flavors and so good for you! I added more brown sugar that what the recipe called for. I used the crock pot and cooked it for about 8 hours. It's an excellent recipe for those looking for something different. I will definately be using this again!

Yummy recipe. I was bent on not having to go to the store for ingredients....I didn't have allspice so I used nutmeg and cloves (which I removed after the sauce was cooked). Also, I didn't have apple juice so I used apple sauce instead. Lastly, adding salt to the recipe made the casserole taste more like a side dish (my family loves dessert so they would've been easily confused!). Great recipe all in all...I received comments like, "better than Marie Calendar's yams!"

I brought this to a Thanksgiving potluck at work and it was a total hit! I was forced to substitute bottled spiced cider for the apple juice, so I omitted the spices and lemon (since those ingredients are already in the cider). It came out great! Very simple-- and I widdled 4 ingredients down to 1.

This was a great change from the usual sticky sweet yam casseroles. The blend of apples and yams was just right. Had many, many compliments on it from all 17 at Thanksgiving dinner. Thanks, Lynn!
