Directions

Share

Ingredients :

  • 8 medium yams
  • peeled and cubed
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • cut into small chunks
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • or as needed
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
  • or to taste
  • Methods :

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add yams and boil for 10 minutes. Drain and rinse twice with cold water. Soak in cold water for 15 minutes.
  • While yams are soaking, preheat the oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C).
  • Mix white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg together in a small bowl.
  • Peel and cut yams into chunks and place in a large baking dish. Dot with butter and sprinkle with sugar mixture so all yams are coated. Carefully pour enough orange juice into the bottom of baking dish to measure 1/2 inch.
  • Bake in the preheated oven, basting often, until yams are tender and the liquid is thick and sticky, 3 to 3 1/2 hours. Sprinkle with mini marshmallows. Turn on the oven’s broiler. Broil until marshmallows are melted and toasty, about 5 minutes.
