This recipe comes from the label on a can of Bruce's brand yams. The yams can be prepared in the oven, on the stovetop, or in the microwave.

This is perfect. I don't like yams too overdone & too sweet. This has just the amount of sweetness to let you know that you are eating a delicious vegetable; not a dessert. This is on my dinner table every holiday and me and my family love them! Sometimes simple just tastes better.
