Spiced Citrus n’ Honey Baked Yams

Plated

I’m so excited to share this recipe with you as it is the perfect side dish to serve at your holiday meal. Canned yams, also known as sweet potatoes contain high amounts of corn syrup and additional sugar. The texture on the palate is not pleasing either. Baked yams are so simple to make and this recipe is a wonderfully healthy alternative to the popular marshmallow covered version. The secret is simply slow cooking the yams in a mixture of butter and warm spices found in our Spiced Citrus n’ Honey Finishing Butter Blend. The slow baking process creates a caramelized finish and prevents them from turning to mush. You will never go back to canned yams again, and if you didn’t like them before; you will now!

Spiced Citrus n’ Honey Baked Yams

2 large yams, peeled and cut into 1 inch pieces
½ stick of unsalted butter, softened
4 tsp. TZM Spiced Citrus n’ Honey Finishing Butter Blend
Brown sugar for topping (optional)

Ingredients

Method:

Butter

Bring the butter to room temperature (softened). In a small mixing bowl, blend together the butter and Spiced Citrus n’ Honey Blend. Set aside.

Cubed

Peel and cut the yams into 1 inch pieces. The yams can be quartered and then sliced into ½ inch pieces; which is the way I did them or you can simply cut them into cubes.

Brushed

Place the cut yams into a larger bowl and brush the blended butter over the top, turning and brushing until fully coated.

Panned

Place the yams on a baking sheet lined with foil, lightly spray to prevent sticking. Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees and bake in the oven for 30 minutes. Turn them frequently to caramelize evenly. Place into a serving dish and lightly sprinkle with a little brown sugar.
