Mashed Yams

DSC_6593 copy
Since I don’t know of anyone who could take a pile of cooked mashed yams and make them look appetizing, I chose instead to show them before they were cooked in all their orange-alicious glory!  These turned out much better than I thought, being creamy and flavorful and frankly, perfect!
  • 4 medium fresh yams, peeled and cubed
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Bring large pot of water to a full boil.  Add the potatoes and retune to a boil.  Cook until tender (about 30 mins).  Drain then add butter, sugar, cinnamon and mix with hand mixer until smooth.
