There is nothing better than a dish of candied yams that has been slow baked in the oven for hours, just simmering in that sugary mixture YUM!!
I love sweet potatos I just don’t like having to turn my oven on for an hour+ to cook them to perfection the way I like, so I save that recipe for special occassions like Thanksgiving.
On the weekdays when I ‘m craving sweet potatos to pair with a pot roast and cabbage I turn to this recipe. It is just as delicious and doesn’t require me to turn my oven on.
- 2 large sweet potatoes or yams
- 4 tablespoons of butter
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1/4 t. nutmeg
- 1/4 t. cinnamon
- 1 t. vanilla extract (optional)
