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.....

How to Make CANDIED YAMS (you can freeze and serve later)

  1. Peel yams; cut into 1/2 inch slices (may want to split again if width across is more than 3 inches.(Each individual slice should not be over 1 & 1/2 inches wide and not over 1/2 inch thick). Wash and drain slices.
  2. If freezing: Blanche in boiling water 3 minutes, drain and cool quickly by dipping in ice water, draining real well. 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. TO COOK: Remove from freezer bag and place in baking dish. Sprinkle with 1 tsp cinnamon and 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice. Dot with 4 Tablespoons of Butter and pour 1/4 cup water over mixture. Bake in pre heated oven on 375 - 400 Degrees F. about an hour or until potatoes are tender and syrup is thick.

Remove lid, add sugar and other ingredients, cook until tender and syrup is thick. Be careful not to let potato slices stick or juice to cook down too low. Manipulate eye temperature to prevent this from happening. Can also cook in oven with above instructions.
