I never met my grandparents, but I was told that my paternal grandmother would bake yams with marshmallows for Thanksgiving. So one year I asked my sister to help put one together, which yielded this lovely treat.
Baked Apples and Yams
Preheat oven to 350F
Boil yams until barely tender.
While yams are boiling, grease casserole dish with a thin layer of margarine.
When yams are barely tender, remove from pan and let cool.
Once yams are cooled, peel and slice into 1/8” – 1/4” slices.
Place yams and peeled apple slices in a casserole dish.
In a saucepan, combine glazing ingredients.
Stir over low to medium heat until it begins to thicken.
Pour over yams and apples.
Cover casserole dish with foil and bake at 350F for 1 hr.
