6 medium yams
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup water
5 cups sugar


Peel and slice yams about a quarter inch thick. Rinse and pat dry.

Place yams in a large skillet, add water, butter or margarine and pour sugar over all. Cover tightly with well fitting lid. Simmer over medium heat for 30-35 minutes.

Spoon syrup over potatoes once. Do not stir, because it will break your potatoes up.

REVIEW: recipe rating
This recipe was what I've been looking for so long..Just a simple way to make yams..This recipe is so direct and its open for you to add any extra ingredient (I added nutmeg). Thanks I was added too much water until now!
