Yummy Apples:

  • 2 (19 oz.) can yams, sliced into thin chunks
  • 4 juicy red apples, peeled & sliced
  • 3 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp. butter or margarine
  • Miniature marshmallows, optional

 This recipe is made in layers.  Start with a 2 1/2 quart buttered casserole, and make a 1 inch layer of sliced yams.  Cover completely with 2 of the sliced apples.  Sprinkle with half of the lemon juice, half of the brown sugar and half of the cinnamon, then dab with half of the butter.  Repeat the layers.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.    If desired, 10 minutes before cooking time has expired, cover with a layer of miniature marshmallows, and bake until they turn golden brown. 

This recipe is a nice holiday recipe for yams. It adds flavor to the yam, plus you have your fruit included in this dish. I would like to suggest that your try this recipe for a dinner party, pot luck, and evening meals when serving ham or chicken.
