    ElaineAnn's Note:

    I have made this for holidays for a couple of decades now. Goes great with ham or turkey, but don't save it just for holidays. Makes any meal a little festive. Can be made ahead and baked when dinner is almost ready.

      This will become your new favorite! I have made this recipes for almost 30 years and everyone loves it - even those who don't like sweet potatoes! I do add one small can of pineapple tidbits and I add the drained pineapple juice to the the liquid mixture. I also use a splash or two of fresh lemon juice. You can use fresh sweet potatoes too - just steam or bake them and slice when cool. This is wonderful as a side dish or as a dessert.

      This was so delicious! It tasted like apple pie (but with yams!) and the sauce was so tasty, you could probably use it as a dessert topping. I didn't have canned yams, so I used fresh: I cut 2 yams in halves and baked each half for 3 minutes in the microwave (so they were somewhat cooked but not quite); then sliced them and layered as per the recipe intructions. I also omitted the raisins as I don't like raisins. This was a big hit at dinner - I will definitely make it again! Thanks!
