This is easy since it uses the canned yams in syrup. My Mom would make this as a side dish for broiled fish when I was a kid. You drain the yams and heat the oil and fry them until the edges brown and crisp...very easy and good. I use Princella Cut Sweet Potatoes, cut yams in light syrup. Funny, it says sweet potatoes and yams on the can. Bruce's is another brand that I use too.
