Crock Pot Apple Spiced Yams

READY IN: 7hrs 15mins
Recipe by Sydney Mike

Here's a nice variation for the yam dish that doesn't tie up either oven or stove top! I prefer using long, slender yams for this recipe.

We liked this very much. I subbed dark raisins for golden, as that's what I had on hand. I left the nut topping off completely as I didn't have pecans in the house, and quite frankly, it was very good without (though I'm sure it would be great with!). Next time I make it, I'm going to try leaving the butter out at an attempt to make it a bit healthier. Also, I think I may peel the potatoes next time, as several skins came off the potatoes in the crockpot and I ended up with potato skins floating around separately in the mix. This will definitely be made again for us!
