    Poohbear Pam's Note:

    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

      This is an excellent yam recipe! I was looking for a recipe to help me use up the rest of the fresh cranberries I had, and I'm so glad I chose this recipe! The first time I made it, one of the girls complained that the cranberries were too tart (I didn't get to try it that time as I think it got gobbled up before I could), so the next time I made it, I put the washed berries in some sugar before adding it to the mix. I'm not sure if that helped, but when I tried it, I thought there was an excellent balance of tart and sweet through the dish. Everyone that has tried this dish has really liked it and it's currently my go-to recipe for yams. I'm not a huge yam lover, but I could easily eat this dish any time!
