CANDIED YAMS
By DeVonna Simpson, from La Ribera office.

Peel and cube 6 yams, then boil them until cooked through, let them cool.

Place in a 9 X 12 baking pan and cover with ¾ cups of brown sugar – dark brown is the richest.

Cut a cube of salted butter into small pieces or slices. Spread over yams & sugar. If you use unsalted butter, sprinkle ½ t salt over the yams too. Grate a scant layer of fresh nutmeg over the top & bake at 350° for 40 minutes, or until the sugar & butter melt into a liquid & are bubbling.

The pan will be bubbling with your fragrant yams.
