5largeyamsor sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into ¼ to ½-inch slices
1stickunsalted butter8 tbsp, cut into pieces
Cook yams in boiling water for about 10 minutes.
Place yams in a skillet and then cover with the two sugars, butter, and water.
Cook, uncovered, on low heat until the yams are tender and the liquid has become thick, about 30 to 40 minutes, basting and stirring occasionally.
Yams are also called sweet potatoes.Don't boil the sliced potatoes for more than 10 minutes, otherwise, they will get too soft and completely fall apart during the cooking process.The candied yams can be made several hours in advance and reheated with a little more water just before serving.The yams will keep in the fridge for up to 1 week and can be frozen for up to 2 months.
