I love yams and when I found this recipe I wasn't real sure I would like it with the ginger snaps but it is a really good side dish to serve with ham or pork of any kind. A very simply recipe using canned yams. I personally like to bake mine and use them instead, but this is a real time saver. I hope you will enjoy this easy recipe.
