We love sweet potatoes. We eat baked sweet potatoes year around. During the holiday season, I make Candied Yams, just the way my mother did and my grandmother did, etc, etc probably going back to Scarlet O’Hara and the plantation. 🙂 Although this recipe includes apples and cranberries, the flavor is much the same as my holiday yams.
