  • 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.
