Yams Candied with D.O. Cider


  • 3 large yams
  • 3/4 cup Delicious Orchards Cider
  • 1/3 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon flour


In a saucepan cook 3 large yams in water to cover for 25-30 minutes, or until almost tender. Peel the yams and halve them lengthwise. In another saucepan combine 3/4 cup cider with 1/3 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar and 2 tablespoons butter. Bring the liquid just to the boiling point and simmer for 10 minutes. Arrange the yams in a buttered baking dish. Pour the syrup over them. Bake the yams in a preheated moderately hot oven at 375 degrees. Spoon the syrup over them 3 or 4 times for 45 minutes. In a small dish mix 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar with 1 tablespoon each of butter and flour and sprinkle the mixture over the yams. Increase heat to 400 degrees and bake the yams, basting them frequently for 15 more.
