This was my father's favorite recipe. He was diabetic, but cheated on Thanksgiving with this. We make this on every holiday in his memory.

- 1⁄2 cup firmly packed brown sugar (I use dark brown sugar)
- 2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons margarine
- 1 cup dark corn syrup

- In a saucepan heat brown sugar, corn syrup and margarine to boiling.
- Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

- Arrange yams over syrup overlapping if needed.
- Top with remaining syrup.
- Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes.
