Candied Yams with Cranberries

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Poohbear Pam

This is a delicious variation on candied yams. The fresh cranberries add a slight tartness that cuts down on the sweetness characteristic of traditional candied yams. This recipe was taken from a bag of miniature marshmallows many years ago and I recently re-discovered it. Hope you like it as much as I do!

I was looking for something different this year, more to satisfy my taste and this was great! Although I substituted approx. 3cups fresh sweet potatoes for the canned yams, the tartness of the cranberry was perfect with the fresh sweet potatoes. My family loved them and I expect to be making this treat throughout the year! Thanks, Maria
