Decadent Candied Yams – Great for Christmas and Thanksgiving feasts.
Wash and trim 5 medium sweet potatoes. Boil in salted water about 20 minutes. Peel and slice crosswise in baking dish. Slice about 1/2 inch thick.
Make a syrup (almost candy) of 2 cups sugar, 1 cup water and 1/2 cup butter and pour over sweet potatoes.
Bake in oven until syrup is bubbly and potatoes are browned slightly around edges.
If that’s not sweet enough for ya, top with marshmallows. I shudder in bliss thinking of all that sugar!
