Oh my goodness, this was delicious. I should point out that I guess I cheated a little and used canned yams (only because I could not find any fresh yams in my local grocery stores). But other than that, I followed the recipe as written. And these were delicious yams. It was a little heavy a dish for a mild spring day, definitely more for late fall or winter. But scrumptious nonetheless, and something I will consider for our Thanksgiving table this coming November. Thanks for sharing your recipe, CanadaCook. Made for Spring 2012 Pick-A-Chef.
