I got this out of a magazine also, several years ago. I'm diabetic so I substituted diabetic brown sugar for the honey. I made it for family thanksgiving, no one knew it was not made with real sugar. The apples added surprising flavor. Thanks for reminding me of this Barb, I plan on making it again but this year for Christmas.

Wonderful! The cayenne made a really lovely touch -- a great combination of sweet and hot. Next time I'll cut the butter in half, to try to cut the fat and calorie content a bit.

Delicious!! I used maple syrup instead of honey, a little less than 1/4 C. This dish was not too sweet, with just a dash of spiciness, wonderfully aromatic while baking, too!

We really enjoyed this casserole! The yams are sweet, but not too sweet. The apple and onion give it a nice flavor. I didn't use cayenne pepper, but added a little black pepper instead. I'll be sure to make this one again. Thanks for a great recipe, Barb!

This was delicious. Clearly a different take on sweet potatoes, especially because of the cayenne pepper. The first time I made it, I omitted the onion. The second time I made it, I omitted the onion again, used salted butter that I sauted 1/2 cup of pecan halves in and mixed everything together.
