This is a good recipe. It takes some time for the syrup, brown sugar, and butter to thicken, so just take your time. Drain the yams well. I added a little vanilla, a shake of nutmeg and cinnamon, and a little cajun spice to the syrup mixture (yes, I said cajun spice!)My family loved it!

My mother in law insists on buying canned yams every year for the holidays and I have been using this recipe to dress the up when she's not looking! She thinks this tasty recipe comes right out of the can lol!

Be sure to read the directions before cooking. I mistakenly did not read the part about using the existing syrup from the can to make the stove top sauce for the yams.
I added to much liquid to the all existing sauce. It did not cook properly. I adjusted by pouring off the liquid and only adding back a little and then baked it.

Simple use for canned yams or sweet potatoes. I don't like the syrup in the cans though so I use maple syrup.

Great recipe! Easy too. Flavor was great and it was just what I needed in a hurry when I was trying to figure out how to prepare my canned yams.
Fruit salad can serve multiple purposes. It can be a casual side dish, a kid-friendly healthy snack, or an elegant dessert. Get creative with tropical or exotic fruits like star fruit or lychees, or keep it simple with a fruit cocktail type salad.
