This is by and far the best sweet potato casserole I've ever made. Yams are sweeter than Sweet Potatoes, and they are more golden in color, so try to get them if you can. Also, the potatoes retain far more nutritional value and vitamins if you bake them in lieu of boiling them for preparation. It takes more time, but that is what great baking and cooking sometimes requires, and it's worth it.
