    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 medium yams
    • 1 cup orange juice (freshly squeezed or canned/reconstituted)
    • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
    • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
    • 4 tablespoons finely chopped pecans


    1. 1
      Bake yams (skin on) at 350-degrees until tender when pierced with fork (approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour).
    2. 2
      Remove from oven and wrap in damp paper towel.
    3. 3
      Increase oven temperature to 450-degrees.
    4. 4
      Allow to cool for 10 minutes.
    5. 5
      Peel off skin.
    6. 6
      Slice yams into 1/2" thick rounds.
    7. 7
      (For extra-nice presentation, after you've cut the rounds, use a cookie cutter to create scalloped edges or fancy shapes.) Place yam slices in a shallow baking dish that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray and pour orange juice over all.
    8. 8
      Mix nutmeg with brown sugar and sprinkle atop each slice.
    9. 9
      Top each slice with finely chopped pecans.
    10. 10
      Bake in oven for 10 minutes, or until the sugar is melted and pecans slightly toasted.
    11. 11
      Serve immediately.

      For those who like yams (I don't but make them anyway) I am told these are to die for. I'll take there word on it and rate it as I am told.

      We loved this dish with our holiday meal. I baked the yams the night before and then sliced into cubes. I took the orange juice and added a tbsp of light brown sugar and dash of nutmeg, mixed and put in a large ziploc bag. As I added in the yams to the ziploc bag I added brown sugar to each layer of yams in the bag. Marinated this until dinner next day, turning the bag during the day. Before baking, I added a cup of juice and yams to pyrex dish. Then as I layered the marinated yams I sprinkled each layer with brown sugar/nutmeg mix. Baked in oven at 325 for 25-30 minutes. These were delicious and not overly sweet (sugar to your taste). The work was already done so last minute assembly was easy!!
