  • 6 lbs yams rinsed and patted dry
  • 1 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 stick butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp light corn syrup
  • dash salt


  • Preheat your oven 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Place the yams on a baking sheet and bake them in the oven for about 45 minutes. Make sure not to overcook.
  • After baking the yams, peel them and slice them into 1/4-inch thick pieces then arrange them in a baking dish.
  • In a medium-sized saucepan, add the remaining ingredients and cook your dish over medium heat until the sugar dissolves and the mixture forms a syrupy consistency.
  • Pour the mixture over the yams and bake them once more in the oven uncovered for about 30 minutes. Afterward, serve and enjoy!
