Baked Candied Yams




5 medium-sized yams I use Red Garnet yams

8 tbsp salted butter softened

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

1/4 tsp ground clove

1/4 tsp ground ginger

1 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup brown sugar light or dark

1 tbsp pure vanilla extract not imitation



Preheat the oven to 350 F.

Wash the yams.

Peel then chop the yams (make sure that they are about 1/2 inch thick).

Place the yams into a 9×13 baking dish.

Place the butter into a medium-sized pot and melt it over medium heat.

Once the butter is melted, sprinkle in the white & brown sugar, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, ground ginger, and ground clove.

Turn the stove off, mix the ingredients until the sugar is dissolved, then add in the vanilla extract.

Pour the candied mixture over the yams and try to coat all the yams with the buttery brown sugar glaze.

Next, cover the baking dish with foil and bake the yams in the oven for 30 minutes.

Remove the yams from the oven and baste them with the candied mixture. Mix with a spoon so the glaze evenly covers all the yam slices.

Cover the yams and continue baking for another 15-20 minutes.

Remove the yams from the oven – they should now be super tender and soft. Let them sit for about 10 minutes before serving (the glaze with thicken up).
