How to Make Candied Yams ( Crock Pot)
- Place the yams in crock pot. In a medium bowl, mix together the brown sugar, melted butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, and orange juice. Spoon over yams.
- Cover and cook on the low heat setting 5 1/2 to 6 hours, stirring once, if possible, until the yams are tender.
- Stir in brandy and orange zest. Sprinkle the marshmallows and pecans over the top. Cover and cook 5 minutes longer, or until the marshmallows are melted.
- Notes from the book:
These yams are a yummy addition to holiday meals. Use yams with a vivid sweet orange flesh, because they cook up to a much moister texture than pale sweet potatoes, which can end up dry and crumbly.
