    Thanksgiving is my "FAVORITE" holiday and you can't have Thanksgiving without candied yams. otherwise known as Sweet Potatoes..

    here is an excellent Family recipe for Candied yams.

    ENJOY ....

    Candied Yam Souffle Ingredients

    1 stick butter 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    1 cup light brown sugar 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

    1/2 cup chopped pecans 1 (12-ounce) jar marshmallow topping

    4 cans large yams or sweet potatoes drained

    Candied Yam Souffle

    Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

    Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add brown sugar and pecans. Simmer for 3 minutes. Meanwhile, place drained yams in a large bowl and mash finely with a potato masher (leaving some chunked pieces). Pour sugar/pecan mixture over yams. Stir until combined thoroughly. Add in cinnamon and nutmeg. Transfer to a metal pie pan. Top with marshmallow topping. Bake for 15 minutes at 325 degrees F. Remove from the oven and raise the oven temperature to 400 degrees F. Bake for an additional 10 minutes at 400 degrees F to brown the top, watching carefully to keep from over-browning.

    Yes I do....and this recipe is not sicky sweet...just requires a little time....have made it several times...and we are in luck 'cause the tangerines are now in season!! It's from Cooking Light Magazine.

    Start this recipe a couple days ahead because you want to roast the sweet potatoes or yams in the oven to bring out their sweetness....

    and don't forget to line the cookie sheet with foil to catch the sticky juices and save on clean-up

    NOTE #1 You can use canned sweet potatoes and really cut down

    on the prep and cook time, but we use fresh because they taste so great after roasting. (we don't have yams readily available here)

    NOTE #2.. I use only 2 lemons and sometimes add more tangerine juice..and I use grated tangerine rind ...tried the original recipe and found that the lemon (which I love) was too much for most people's tastes

    You can also adjust the brown sugar to your taste...I use 1/2 cup

    Good luck and Happy Thanksgiving...Dotti B

    My grandmother prepares this every Thanksgiving and it's always a hit. First put in your yam mixture, then put pineapple over the top and follow it with marshmallows. Then, take the juice of the pineapple and pour it over the mellows, it'll be delicious!
