      These were very yummy!!! The sauce didn't quite thicken up as much as I would have like, maybe I had too much sauce and not enough yams!! They were the best yam recipe I have tried!

      The lemon in this yam recipe adds a delicious change to the usual yam dish. I made this for Thanksgiving and everyone raved about it. This recipe has been requested from me from several people who dined with us.
