Candied Yams

Candied Yams have been a Thanksgiving tradition for my family for as long as I can remember. The combination of yams, peaches, and nutmeg is just incredible. I add a little cinnamon in my version.


1/2 cup brown sugar
3 tbsp flour
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)
2 tbsp butter
2 cans yams (17oz)
1 can peaches (16oz)
1 1/2 cups miniature marshmellow


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.

  2. Drain yams and peaches and place in baking dish.

  3. In a separate bowl, mixtogether the sugar, flour, nutmeg, and cinnamon.

  4. Add the spice mixture to the yams and peaches and carefully stir.

  5. Add the butter, cut in small pieces, on top .

  6. Place in preheated oven and cook for 35 minutes.

  7. Remove from oven and top with marshmellows. Return to oven and set the temperature to broil. Watch carefully to prevent the marshmellows from burning.
