This recipe has been used for well over a decade by my mother and myself. Mom chanced upon it at a Christmas party before she retired from New York State Civil Service (Over 37 years Union Strong). It’s a great recipe that will liven up the old stale yam dishes for Thanksgiving or Christmas meals. Easy to make and always a hit, you can bring it to work for your office party. It reheats beautiful. Eat it as a side or as a dessert.
