We loved this. I made a double batch for a large family gathering and used my very biggest crock pot. I did use just a bit more brown sugar and a bit more cinnamon. Yes, my yams got a little dark, but I wouldn't say the color was unappealing. I will certainly make these again. I'm adding this to the dishes I serve at Thanksgiving so that I can save room in my oven. Thanks for posting.
