This will appeal to those of you who don't like the traditional yam/marshmallow combo. A tasty/colorful side to autumn meals. I liked it the day-after, as it was a bit firmer/going to experiment making it in a spring form pan; slices would make a lovely presentation.

This is fabulous! A wonderful combo as a side dish to roasted chicken or turkey. I used a bit less butter, 1 1/2 apples, and I basted it with apple cider. I highly recommend using the apple cider for basting! Enjoy!

This is a very pretty dish. I followed directions exactly. It is not very sweet; I might just add a little more sweetener next time. The cranberries were quite tart. I agree with howmanybites? that it was better the next day.

This has become a tradition at Thankgiving now for the past 3 years. My family loves this recipe (even the kids)! I peel the yams, only because they look better that way. I haven't tried it with the crystallized ginger, but maybe this year! The colors of the yams, cranberries, and apples are really pretty on the plate. I highly recommend this recipe!

I made this for Thanksgiving this year and since I am the only one in my family who will eat yams I didn't get any feedback on it from others (wimps!!). This is a good, different way to make yams. I have to say that the cranberries were TART! The only changes I made were to peel the yams and I used honey instead of sugar as I am allergic to cane sugar. This was even better the next day after the flavors had blended overnight.
