I am a country girl and grew up on the farm. We grew a lot of what we ate. I just read that fuel and groceries are going up in price. So, I'm glad to have a lot of canned goodies and a freezer full of food. Something I learned as a child...Children today sure need to learn survival off the land!!Anyway, Candied Yams were a favorite for me as a child and I love them today. I loved candied yams, purple hull peas, fried okra and cornbread. Am I country or what? Enjoy.....

For slices from 4 medium sweet potatoes, MIX the cup of sugar, 1 Tbsp flour, the tsp of ascorbic acid, and the dash of salt. Mix with potato slices. Package in freezer bags, seal and freeze.

Bake in pre heated oven on 375 - 400 Degrees F. about an hour or until potatoes are tender and syrup is thick.
