Golden apples and yams

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 larges Yams or sweet potatoes
2 \N Golden delicious apples; cored and sliced crosswise into rings
¼ cup Firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon Cornstarch
⅛ teaspoon Ground cloves
½ cup Orange juice
2 tablespoons Chopped pecans or walnuts

* Because yams (or sweet potatoes) require much longer cooking than apples, this recipe calls for prebaking them. This step can be done a day or two ahead, making the dish easy to put together at the last minute. Heat oven to 400 F. Bake yams 50 minutes or until soft but still retains shape. (This can also be done in microwave. ) Cool yams until they can be handled. Peel and slice yams crosswise. Reduce oven to 350 F. In shallow 1-quart baking dish, alternate apple rings and yam slices, overlapping their edges slightly. In small saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch and cloves; stir in orange juice and blend. Heat orange juice mixture, stirring, until thickened; pour over apples and yams. Top casserole with nuts and bake 20 minutes or until apples and yams are tender.
