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.
