Directions Step-By-Step

1
Drain yams or carrots, pour into microwave safe bowl or large casserole dish. Of course, you can use fresh veggies - just roast and peel them as you normally would first!

Add dry ingredients to liquid, mix until dissolved.
5
Cut butter into cubes and distribute evenly over yams or carrots.
6
Pour mixture over yams or carrots, fold to coat.
7
Bake at 350 degrees 30 minutes or microwave on high for 10 minutes until bubbling.
8
Let stand a few minutes before serving. Can top with mini-marshmallows if desired.

The sauce is more versatile than I thought. Recently I've discovered it's fantastic as an addition to barbeque sauce, a dipping sauce, some pie recipes (awesome with pumpkin), a glaze for some meats and it will also work with other veggies. Be adventurous!
