How to Make Candied Yams
- Cook the unpeeled yams in boiing water for about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and cool until you can peel them. Cut in half lengthwise.
- Melt butter, sugar, Karo syrup, and water together in a large, heavy skillet. Lay yams cut side down in this syrup and cook on low heat turning occasionally and basting occasionally so yams can candy on both sides.
- Keep heat low so they do not scorch. Cook slowly until yams are tender and syrup flavor has permeated the yams. Takes abaout 30-45 minutes depending on how much you precooked your yams.
