    This is similar to a recipe I make that has been in the family over a hundred years. No sweet potatoes; only the orange yams. In our family recipe, the 1/2 cooked yams were sliced and laid in a large fry pan over the sauce. Then basted. Later it was switched to an electric fry pan. No vanilla. Other than the vanilla, this process is way easier. I will try for Thanksgiving this year. So, nice to see an easier way to make an old classic.
