Candied Yams Recipe


Candied Yams to die for! These are a hit with the family and I’ve been asked to make them, not only at Thanksgiving and Christmas but all year round.

They are even better the next day!


  • 3 pounds Orange Sweet Potatoes Or Yams
  • 4 sticks Salted Butter
  • 2 cups Dark Brown Sugar, Firmly Packed
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Vanilla


  1. Scrub yams clean and cut into 2-inch thick slices (do not peel). Place in a large stock pot and cover with cold water. Place over medium high heat and bring to a boil. Allow to simmer until fork-tender, about 15 minutes. Carefully drain water and allow yams to cool to the touch.
  2. Once they can be handled, peel then place in a 13 x 9 baking dish in an even layer.
  3. Melt butter in a medium-sized saucepan over medium high heat. Stir in brown sugar until combined. Allow to boil for 5 minutes, then pull off the stove. Add salt and vanilla, then pour over yams.
  4. If making ahead, cover with foil and allow to cool to room temperature before placing in the refrigerator.
  5. When ready to serve, preheat oven to 350ºF. Uncover yams and place in the oven for 30 minutes or until warmed through and slightly bubbling around the edges. Be very careful when serving. Enjoy!
