Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

4 medium Jewel or Garnet yams
2 TB butter, melted
1/4 cup orange or pineapple juice, optional
1 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 tsp cinnamon
pinch of sea salt


Preheat oven to 400°F.

Bake yams for about one hour, or until soft.

The skins should peel off easily when they are still warm.

Mash yams well and mix with butter and juice, if desired.

Place yams in a square glass baking dish.

Spread evenly and flatten the top.

Toss pecans with maple syrup, cinnamon and a pinch of salt.

Spread evenly over the top of the yams.

Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until pecans are toasty and the yams are hot and bubbly.

Serves 4-6
