      The kids ate this happily with no dip, I think that speaks for itself. Very good. I threw everything except the yams into a frying pan and waited for it to thicken at med-high heat, then tossed in the yams and tossed them to cover well. Then put them on a cookie sheet lined with non stick foil. Clean up was easy, prep was easy, perfect!

      I knew I was going to like this recipe, it is sweet potatoes and balsamic vinegar after all. But lord have mercy, add in that caramelization and it was like having dessert on the same plate with dinner. Yummy stuff!

      Excellent combo~~we love balsamic! I also sprinkled the yams with some course sea salt & freshly ground pepper before roasting. Make sure to not cut your cubes too small, as they will be done before getting a real chance to caramelize. Thanks!
