  • Stovetop Candied Yams


    This is an old fashioned candied yam recipe I got from a Southern friend years ago. My family really enjoys yams done this way.

    Candied Yams

    6 medium sized yams
    1/3 cup dark Karo syrup
    1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
    1/4 cup water
    1/4 pound butter

    Cook the unpeeled yams in boiling water for about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and cool until you can peel them. Cut in half lengthwise. Melt butter, sugar, Karo syrup, and water together in a large skillet. Lay yams cut side down in this syrup and cook on low heat, turning occasionally and basting occasionally so yams candy on both sides. Keep heat low so they do not scorch. Cook slowly until yams are tender and syrup flavor has permeated the yams. Takes about 30-45 minutes, depending on how much you precooked your yams.

    I like to use this recipe since the yams are cooked on top of the stove so the oven can be used for other things for holiday dinners.
