candied yams 3

12 Servings
4 pounds Yams; peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
¾ cup Dark brown sugar; packed
3 tablespoons Butter; melted
1½ teaspoon Ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon Grated nutmeg
2 tablespoons Fresh orange juice
3 tablespoons Brandy; optional
1½ teaspoon Grated orange zest
1 cup Minature marshmallow
½ cup Pecans; chopped and toasted

Place the yams in a 4 quart electric slow cooker. In a medium bowl, mix together the brown sugar, melted butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, and orange juice. Spoon the yams.

Cover and cook on the low heat setting 5½ to 6 hours, stirring once. If possible, until yams are tender.

Stir in the brandy and orange zest. Sprinkle the marshmallows and pecans over the top. Cover and cook 5 minutes longer, or until the marshmallows are melted. Serve immediately.
