Pita's Candied Yams

55 mins (prep 15, cooking 40)
6 ingredients
6-8 servings
I have to say, all of my life I was not a yam fan. When I met my husband (boyfriend back then) this was a tradition in his family as a holiday dish. I gave it a try and now i'm hooked. They are a must have for our holidays and just might soon be yours too. I love to eat them right along with the turkey.
