Ingredients
  • 4 pounds yams (or sweet potatoes), peeled and cut to large bite-sized pieces
  • 2 cups orange juice
  • 3 cups light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 1/2 cups light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Boil yams until slightly underdone, to avoid breaking. Strain, cool and set aside.

In a large container whisk together orange juice, corn syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and zest. In another bowl, whisk flour and both sugars together.

Put cooled yams in a deep baking dish, add dry ingredients and stir to coat. Pour liquid over yams and bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
