This came from a Southern Living Cookbook. It's a holiday tradition at our home. The recipe is requested everytime it is served. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. It is a cinch to put together, but tastes so heavenly.
- 1 (40 ounce) can yams, drained
- 3 cups fresh cranberries, whole
- 1 1⁄2 cups white sugar
- 1 small orange, sliced
- 1⁄2 cup pecan halves
- 1⁄4 cup orange juice
- 3⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1⁄4 teaspoon mace
- Combine whole cranberries, white sugar, orange slices, pecan halves, orange juice, cinnamon, nutmeg and mace in 2 quart casserole. Bake uncovered at 375* degrees for 30 minutes.
- Stir drained yams into cranberry mixture. Return to oven and bake until heated through (about 15 minutes). Enjoy!
This dish was a wonderful change from the same old boring sweet potatoes. Loved the spiciness and the fact that it was one dish instead of 2 seperate dishes to clean!!
