Published June 26, 2010 9:27PM (EDT)


  • 2 medium yams, peeled
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar


  1. Slice yams into 1-inch thick rounds and place in an 8-inch by 8-inch glass baking dish.
  2. Add juice and brown sugar. Cover with foil.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake for 30 more minutes. Check frequently to ensure that juice has not reduced to nothing and burned. If necessary, add more juice.
  4. Save about 1/2 cup of the reduced juices, discard the rest and mash yams with juice until smooth.
