Candied Yams

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2012
This is a must have for our family at Thanksgiving. I'd probably be disowned if I didn't make it. I'm only giving it 4 stars because I make a few changes. I make this recipe x5 because we have a big family and everyone loves it. I cut down on the butter a little and use the liquid from the yams to make up the difference(probably about 2/3 butter to 1/3 yam liquid). I melt the butter and add the brown sugar with a little nutmeg and vanilla. I added pineapple one year and everyone loved it so now I always do. One year I put the pineapple slices on the bottom of the pan and it was really good. The next year I tried adding pineapple chunks to the yams and everyone raved about it. I use mini marshmallows and add them after fully cooking the yams. They come out nicely browned and gooey.
