    lovin2cook's Note:

    This is an EASY recipe that my grandmother used to make. This is one of my favorites of hers. I don't like sweet potatoes, but I love these. I got the recipe from a friend of hers (she has passed) and decided to share. It's delicious and a sweet treat.

      I can't believe that I never reviewed this recipe. It is the best! I have been using this recipe for a couple of years now. I have never changed the ingredients. Why mess with perfection:) Good recipe Lovin2cook

      I didn't know what karo was, so used maple syrup. I also was afraid it might get too sweet so sprinkled some smoked paprika at the very end. This was a delicious recipe!

      This is how everyone should make their yams. I don't even like to call them yams because I've never cared for them alot. These are soooooooo much better than those canned things!
