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.
Really simple and tasty. Very good with poultry and pork. Make for football pool 2010 week 8
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!
we had this with our easter ham and yum-o it was the best. it smelled so good i could not wait to eat it with our dinner. my kids even enjoyed this and they are not big yam fans......a real keeper thank for sharing
I made a half recipe of this for a small family meal. We loved this; DH could not stop eating it! This would be so good and special for a holiday meal.
What a great recipe, ElaineAnn. I made this for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it. I liked the convenience of using canned yams and being able to assemble it ahead of time. The sauce is very well-flavored and aromatic. And you are right, it is very festive. The only change I made was to use craisins instead of raisins. Thanks for the keeper!
We really enjoyed this recipe! I roasted a turkey breast and added this to the menu and was so glad I did. The flavor was excellent. I did not add the raisins since I'm not a big fan of raisins and I don't think it made a difference. I did make it ahead which was nice becuse there was less last minute fuss. The spice was just right. This is a great recipe for your holiday meal. Thanks so much for posting a recipe I will be using again!
