      These were really really good! I added some chopped red apples, raisins, and pecans to the yams and it really added a nice touch. This is so easy to make yet fancy enough to serve to company. Thanks so much for posting!

      I loved it. Thanks! I used canned sweet potatoes and modified the ingredient amounts for the quantity of potatoes I had. I cut them up into smaller pieces.

      I was looking around for a yam recipe that would be similar to the way I remember my Dad's version. This looked pretty close and it was good. My only recommendation would be to thicken the syrup. I think my Dad used to add cornstarch. I'm going to give that try next time I make these.
