Barbecued Yams

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by peleegal

My parents always check the discount rack at the grocery store. When there is Yams they make this. A great hot item to prepare in the summer when you are already barbecuing.

Just finished eating these for supper and they are fantastic. The sweetness of the maple syrup adds just the right touch. I wish I could give it more stars, but 5 seems to be the limit. Thanks for posting a new way to eat yams. I usually roast mine in the oven with some salt and olive oil. Again thanks for posting.
