    Chicagoland Chef du Jour's Note:

    I love the idea of combining these two holiday favorites. Portions size: is based on 1/2 medium potato per person. Choose smaller or larger. Part way through the cooking I stuck a toothpic under the lid to prop it open to vent some of the steam and reduce the liquid. The original recipe did not specify high or low heat setting. *I started my crock on the low setting then kicked it up to high after a couple hours cuz I got nervous about the timing.

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine all ingredients, EXCEPT pecans.
    2. 2
      Toast pecans in the oven or dry skillet, set aside. Careful not to burn!
    3. 3
      Cook for 6 - 8 hours, until the yams are tender. I stir to combine every hour or so.
    4. 4
      About 1-2 hours before serving, if the mixture is too wet, prop the lid open a bit with a toothpick to let some of the steam out and thicken up the sauce.
    5. 5
      Put in your favorite serving dish and top with pecans for serving.

      Had some left-over raw sweet potatoes and fresh cranberries from the holidays, and put this together. Left the crockpot on HIGH for 4 hours, and the aroma wafted through the house all afternoon ! Did not include the pecans, personal choice, and this made a lovely side to the pork tenderloin I had in the oven. It was not at all "wet" with the lid on, and will fix this when the family is here. Thanks for posting !

      I made this for Christmas Eve dinner, and I was hesitant to make a holiday dish without a stick of butter or a block of cream cheese. What a surprise winner this recipe was! I've never cooked with fresh cranberries, and they were a wonderful tart balance to the sweetness of the taters and brown sugar. I will definitely make this again! Thanks!

      This is a simple recipe. It is sweet, but not overpoweringly so as candied yams can be. It's healthier too, because it doesn't have butter, but you never miss it.
