Golden Apples and Yams|
Recipe reprinted with permission from Becky's Cookbook.
"This was so delicious. The two flavors combine perfectly and the syrup added just enough sweetness."
2 large or 3 medium yams or sweet potatoes
2 Golden Delicious apples, peeled, cored, and sliced crosswise into rings
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon cloves or apple pie spice mix
1/2 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons chopped pecans or walnuts
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Bake yams 50 minutes or until soft but still hold their shape. Can also be done in the microwave. Let yams cool enough to handle.
Reduce oven to 350 degrees. Peel and slice yams crosswise. In 1 1/2 quart baking dish, alternate apple rings, and yam slices, overlapping edges slightly. In small saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch and spice; stir in orange juice and mix well. Heat orange juice mixture over medium heat, stirring until thickened. Pour over apples and yams. Sprinkle with nuts and bake for 20 minutes or until apples and yams are tender.
