Brandied Holiday Yams
Everyone looks forward to this simple and delicious, and may I add, very healthy recipe.
Yams and sweet potatoes are among the healthiest veggie you can eat. It is total fibre, and full of vitamins and nutrients that your body needs to maintain a health balance.
Peel the yams and cut into chunks. Place in pot of water and bring to a boil. Continue to cook until partially cooked, thus parboil.
Remove from pot and place into a large sauté pan or fry pan. Add 1/2 stick of butter and allow yams to sauté in the butter for about 5 mins. Combine a little of the yam water to the brown sugar and add that liquid to the yams while cooking. While yams are softening, break up with wooden spoon and maintain the chunky content.
Add a little cinnamon to the mix, folding well. Then, add 1/4 cup Benedictine Brandy or any sweet brandy that is available to the yams. Sauté for a short while longer. Plate, sprinkle with cinnamon and serve.
