Yams Amaretto

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Caroline Cooks

Delicously flavored with Amaretto; For those with children; as these cook the alcohol evaporates, leaving a wonderful almond flavor to the yams. From my dear friend, Carole, who is no longer with us.

OUTSTANDING! Great flavor, easy prep! I used just a bit more than 1/4 cup of dark brown sugar! Also steamed the yams, then sliced but did not peel, since I like the flavor of the skin! Maybe not as pretty in the end, but very tasty! Definitely a keeper to make again & again! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's PAC]
