DIRECTIONS

  • Grease a shallow 3qt baking dish; set aside.
  • Steam or boil the peeled yams until almost tender; cool and slice into approximately 1 1/2 inch slices (you want them to fit in a the 3qt baking dish in one layer).
  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • In a small saucepan, simmer brown sugar, syrup, butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar has dissolved and syrup thickens, about 5 minutes; Remove from heat and stir in whisky (or other liquor of choice).
  • Drizzle syrup over yams. Cover with aluminum foil (at this point, they may be refrigerated until you're ready to bake them). Bake the yams, basting every 15-20 minutes, until syrup has thickened and absorbed (note: not all the syrup will absorb), about 1 1/4 hours. May be served hot, warm, or at room temperature.
