Holiday Yams

READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by seashell

I came up with the idea of combining the yams and apples when I had all four generations for dinner one Thanksgiving. Everyone loved it from GreatGrandmas on down to my (then) 2 year old granddaughter.

Great easy recipe. I peeled the Yam, sliced it into 1/4" slices then boiled it - took 8 minutes. Then assembled the casserole. It was so easy doing it this way. The yams came out perfect - Definite do again recipe I didn't add the raisins because I was serving Raisin sauce with the ham steaks so I have that to look forward to another time
