Maple-Glazed Yam Stars

Yield:
4 servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 4 large yams, at least 3 inches in diameter (each yam should yield 3 stars, depending on exact size)
  • 1 1/2 cups orange juice
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  • Place each yam on its side and slice crosswise into 1/2-inch rounds.

  • Using a 3-inch star-shaped cookie cutter, cut out a star shape from each round. Discard the scraps.

  • Place the stars in the baking dish. Pour the orange juice and syrup over the top, and cover tightly with aluminum foil.

  • Bake for 40 to 60 minutes, until yams are soft to the touch of a fork, then remove the foil and bake for approximately 30 more minutes, or until yams start to become candied. Keep a watchful eye on stars and remove early if the pan juices reduce to the point of burning. To avoid any breakage, serve directly from the baking dish with a spatula.
