How to Make Mango and Almond Yams

Step-by-Step

  1. Instructions:
    Peel yams and cut into 1/4-inch slices; drop into a bowl of water to keep from discoloring. Drain water and transfer to a large pot fitted with a steamer basket. Steam for 10 to 15 minutes or until tender when pierced with a fork. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly butter a 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Stir together the brown sugar and cinnamon.
