Polly’s Yams

Polly’s Sweet Yams

By Pauline Harris

 

For Large Family or Get-togethers:

Ingredients:

6 to 8 large fresh yams

½ lb. miniature marshmallows

up to 1 jar of marshmallow cream

1 tbsp pumpkin seasoning

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 cup brown sugar

½ cup (1 stick) unsalted-sweetened butter, melted

 

Preheat oven at 350 degrees.

On stove boil water in half filled pan(s) at medium to medium-high temperature.  While water is getting hot, chop yams into roughly evenly chunks of 2 inches.  Put yam chunks into heated water.   Leave yams in till tender with fork (and there is normally a little foam at the top of the water).  You can turn the heat down a tad, if needed.  When the yams are done, drain completely.   Let cool for a little bit of time, then peel the yams.

In a large bowl, mash yams till desired texture.  Add butter,  brown sugar, seasonings, and the marshmallow cream into the yam mash.  Place the ingredients into large casserole dish.

Cook for 20 minutes.  Remove from the oven and add the marshmallows.  Broil till marshmallows are golden brown.  Enjoy.

 

PS  this recipe has grown over the years.  Lately, I have not used the whole jar of marshmellow cream and have added some crushed pineapple…and some dried cranberries and nuts.  Mixing up the flavours makes it interesting each year.
