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.

This was a very good recipe, Everything turned out great, I did not cut them in half I sliced them all up and dumped everything in a pan, I will use this from now on.

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'm glad to know that I am the first to try this recipe. The candied yams are absolutely awesome, my youngest daughter would not eat candied yams before now she wants them all the time. I will definitely make these again, as a matter of fact I am making them today. Thank you, Lil Bit

The yams where pretty good. i added a little orange juice for that xtra zing! I didn't have any cinnamon, but it was still good.

These are delish, a bit sticky if you have any spills but worth the effort for a holiday meal.
