Lily's Mashed Yams

Print Email

5 large Yams
½ stick butter
½ cup orange juice
¼ cup brown sugar
some nutmeg
some cinnamon
pinch of cayenne pepper

Preheat over to 400°F.

Poke the hell out of the yams. Put them in the microwave for a few minutes to get the cooking started. Bake until you can poke through easily. (Around 40 minutes) Let them cool until you can handle without burning yourself.

Peel the yams and mix with all other ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add more or less spices according to your preferences. When YOU think it tastes perfect, put mixture into a large baking dish. Sprinkle some extra brown sugar on top. Reheat for thirty minutes. Enjoy!
