I don't know who Barbara is but she deserves a medal for these sweet potatoes! Yeah, it's a simple recipe but the proportions are just perfect of all the ingredients. Not sickly sweet like some, not too seasoned like others. Thank you for sharing this!

Loved this recipe! They were a big hit at the dinner table. I have been trying every year to get this exact taste and every year I failed. This year I am so excited to have found this recipe. I used cinnamon instead of nutmeg and canned yams. Thank you so much for sharing. They brought back memories from my childhood. Everyone raved.

I have been making this recipe for years. I am going to try to make them in a crockpot for Thanksgiving tomorrow. I will let you know how I did.
artemis November 20, 2012 REVIEW:
I hit the jackpot when I found this recipe. My friend served a commercial version of this recipe which I loved but is much more expensive. This fab recipe is economical and a tastier version of the former. Kudos to you, Barbara!

Thank god I was able to find this recipe again. I need to keep it in a safe place. These are so good, I won't make any other type of yams again! Thanks!
Kstar24 November 30, 2010 REVIEW:
I have always used canned yams. This year I wanted to try the real thing. I decided to try this recipe since it was so simple. OH MY OH MY OH MY!!!! I can not say enough about this recipe. Everyone thought they were the best yams ever! It was the highlight of the entire Thanksgiving dinner! Highly recommend for everyone to try this!
Linds November 25, 2010 REVIEW:
Most amazing yams I've ever eaten!!!! WOW!!!!!!!!
Guest Foodie November 24, 2010 COMMENT: I want to make this recipe but am unsure what size canned yams to use ?????
L&Lmom November 23, 2010 REVIEW:
These were great! I am making my first thanksgiving dinner and I needed something traditional. I decided to try this yesterday just to make sure they were good enough to make on the big day. I did changed a few things though. Instead of real yams, I used the canned. Reason being is that I need something quick that I will be able to whip up, stick in the oven and forget about it until serving time. I am cooking for 20 people and dont have time to deal with 18 boiling sweet potatoes. I also used Cinnamon instead of nutmeg.
overall they turned out delicious and i willl definitley be making it for this thanksgiving!! Thanks Barb!!

Guest Foodie November 30, 2009 REVIEW:
I was asked to make candied yams this year for Thanksgiving...THANK GOODNESS I CAME ACROSS THIS RECIPE!!! Everyone at dinner had nothing but good things to say about them. I doubled the recipe and the entire pan disappeared!!
CollectorGirl November 30, 2009 REVIEW:
I searched many recipe's and picked this one because it matched what I wanted to see! And it was delicious! The only thing I changed was that I happen to have 6 yams and I used all of them (since I already had them!) and I happened to only use 1 Tbsp of flour. And my sugar/butter mixture did not 'pour' either, but I knew it would all melt together. I LOVED this recipe and will use it again next year! No need to look for another one! And one of my guests asked for the recipe too - and she's a great cook! Thanks so much!!
melissa November 30, 2009 REVIEW:
I used this with canned sweet potatoes instead of fresh and used cinnamon instead of nutmeg. The delicious! The sauce was thick and sweet just like we like it!
Debbie November 27, 2009 REVIEW:
This was the absolutely BEST and EASIEST sweet potato recipe I have ever made! You have to try it!!!
Guest Foodie November 27, 2009 COMMENT: I have been cooking for over 60 years and this is unquestionably the best candied yam recipe I've ever made. As a matter of fact, my guests have already asked for the recipe to use themselves! Bravo! I made one change and substituted Splenda for the white sugar although I used real unsalted butter. I also prepared the dish and cooked it until the last 15 minutes the day before, then refrigerated overnight. Just before dinner I gave it the last 15 minutes.

Let me just say that I am not a cook but thanks to this recipe, my thanksgiving table will have a special spot for candid yams!!!
Guest Foodie April 11, 2009 COMMENT: I haven't baked them yet but am puzzled at "pour" mixture over yams. My mixture is thick and I had to spoon it over the potatoes. Seems like I'm missing an ingredient...some water maybe?
Kimmi January 18, 2009 REVIEW:

I made this dish for supper one night. AMAZING. We all had seconds. Great recipe, I will definitely use this again.
vana December 4, 2008 REVIEW:
I don't eat yams. I offered to make them for a family Thanksgiving gathering and everyone ranted and raved. I ate them as well. A few days later a family gather on the otherside, so I made another batch. More rant and raves and everyone wants the recipe. This is the best recipe ever. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Looking992 December 1, 2008 REVIEW:
This recipe is the bomb! I added a little cinnamon and marshmellows and it was excellent! The next time I will add raisins and pineapple bits. Thank you!
Lennia November 30, 2008 REVIEW:
I was not sure about the vanilla and nutmeg, but after tasting them and hearing the raves, I'll make this one again and again!
