  1. Love the tart flavor the apples added to this dish but like a couple have said I wish I'd drained my yams.
  2. Used peaches instead yum!
  3. This was good! I've never used canned yams so I wasn't sure what to expect but they worked well in this. Also I couldn't find regular canned apples but I did find 'fried' cinnamon apples in syrup so I used those and that was great. I think next time I will use less (if any) - Read more ...
  4. This is very good. I don't care for yams but this recipe is not over sugared. I use this for potlucks and everyone loves it. The only thing I change is I drain the yams. Its too much liquid and makes it hard to transport. Reserve the yam liquid until you see how moist its - Read more ...
  5. This was good. I used fresh sweet potatos and fresh apples.
  6. This is a great quick and easy side dish! I am not a huge fan of canned sweet potatoes but I did like them in this dish. My husband loved it and finished off the leftovers. The only change I will make next time is to only drain half of the cans of the yams - Read more ...
  7. Fast easy and yummy!
