Candied Yams

How to make

Candied yams made easy! They're ready in only 30 minutes, using just 4 ingredients for a delectable, no-fuss side dish.

You will need...

Unsalted Butter Sweet Potatoes Light Brown Sugar Cinnamon

Yeast Package

Wash and peel your yams. Carefully slice the yams into ½-inch rounds. Melt butter over medium to medium heat in a large skillet or saucepan.


Once the butter has melted, layer yam slices inside of the skillet, and cook for about 5 minutes.


Sprinkle brown sugar and ground cinnamon all over the yams. Gently give everything a mix so the sugar is evenly distributed.


Reduce the heat to low, cover the skillet, and simmer for 30 minutes. Baste frequently, about every 10 minutes. The yams should be soft but not mushy.


Serve yams immediately, and enjoy!
