  • It usually comes in a light syrup that I add some brown sugar to & cook it down into a thicker syrup. Then I add the yams & stir them around to coat them. When they're all coated, I pour it all into a 9x13 pan & bake for a bit. The last 5 or so mins of baking I add the mini marshmallows and bake till they're lightly brown.

  • I drain off the liquid. Cook and then mash with butter, brown sugar and cinnamon.

  • I drain the water if I boil them; I prefer the flavor of baked sweet potatoes.
