Glazed Yams with Cinnamon and Nutmeg

I don’t know about you but yams are one of my favorite side dishes for the holidays! This one is off the charts with flavor too.

Ingredients

  • 2½ lbs. medium yams, peeled, cut into 2-inch pieces (about 8 cups)
  • 1 tsp. sea salt, divided use
  • 2 tsp. grated orange peel
  • 2 Tbsp. 100% orange juice
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 3 Tbsp. butter, melted
  • 2 Tbsp. raw honey (or maple syrup)
  • ½ tsp. ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. ground nutmeg
  • Instructions
  • Preheat oven to 350° F.

Arrange yams in 13x9x2-inch glass baking dish. Season evenly with ¼ tsp. salt. Set aside.

Combine orange peel, orange juice, lemon juice, butter, and honey in a small bowl; whisk to blend.

Pour orange juice mixture over yams; toss to coat.

Sprinkle evenly with remaining ¾ tsp. salt, pepper, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

Bake yams, stirring occasionally, for 50 to 60 minutes, or until fork-tender.
