How To Make Candied Yams

Yams are a great addition to your diet. Like sweet potatoes, yams are rich in beta carotene, potassium and vitamin C. While they are very similar, yams and sweet potatoes are from two different plant families. Peel roasted yams and cut them into chunks. The sizes can vary. As the yams cook, they soften and are easy to cut into small pieces when eating. Simmer orange juice, brown and white sugar and butter in a sauce pan and then add the yams. Allow the yams to marinate in the sauce until they have absorbed some of the delicious candied flavor. In this video, Chef Mark provides an online cooking lesson for sweet and seasonal candied yams. For more great cooking demonstration videos, subscribe to the LearnToCookOnline YouTube channel.
