Tangy Sweet Yams

Today I made a new recipe: Tangy Sweet Yams



5-6 yams, peeled and cut in small chunks
1/3 can frozen orange juice (no water added)
1/2 large bag mini marshmallows
2 cups brown sugar

Boil yams 'til tender in electric skillet or large pot on stove. Drain most of the liquid. Add the frozen orange juice, brown sugar, and marshmallows. If it's too tangy, add more brown sugar and marshmallows.

Yummy delicious!

Plans for the day had changed. Friends had invited us for their family Thanksgiving dinner today. However, they had major water problems and had to get a repairman out. First, the dinner was delayed two or three hours. Then, I received a text saying it was canceled. I had planned to bring my yams, so I fixed them for hubby and me. They were oh so yummy good!

Hi Angi-I really wanted to make candied yams again this year, but was talked out of it that someone else is bringing one to the Thanksgiving feast...now that I see your tangy orange yams, I would like to try this for Christmas.

The frozen orange concentrate is a great idea to use for the tanginess.
Thanks for sharing your yummy yam recipe.
