This is super easy and it is wonderful! I have made the yams whole, and sometimes I cut them into either halves or chunks. I have also made these "twice baked" By baking the yams,cutting them in half, taking out the filling, blending the filling with the seasoned butter,stuffing it back into the shell and heat them up again. Serve with additional seasoned butter. Yum!
Did you know that Yams contain more natural sugar than sweet potatoes and have a higher moisture content? Sweet potatoes can also be used with success.
