Grandpa’s Candied Yams
With Christmas looming around the corner, we’d though it would be great to feature some tempting Christmas recipes. Have any home-favorites to share? Let us know @migAzine! In the meantime, here’s a simple recipe that uses sweet potatoes, from international music star Ciara.
- 6 extra large sweet potatoes
- 3 cups of boiling water
- 3 cups sugar
- 3 to 4 Tbsp. vanilla extract
- 3 Tbsp. lemon flavor
- 3 sticks butter
- Cut and dice sweet potatoes, set aside.
- In a large pot, boil 3 cups of water. Add potatoes, sugar, vanilla extract, lemon flavor, butter. Simmer until potatoes are to the texture of liking (ideal time 45 minutes)
