I am actually using a large sweet potato and not a yam in these photos but "Candied Sweet Potatoes" just doesn't have the same ring to it. I usually use both yams and sweet potatoes because sweet potatoes taste better and then the name is still accurate when I call them "Candied Yams."
The sweet potatoes are huge here and I only use half of the smallest one I could find in this recipe... Back East there are often much smaller tubers available so it is easier to get a couple each of yams and sweet potatoes to mix together.
You Will Need:
Yam(s) or Sweet Potato(es)

You should only need a tablespoon or two of brown sugar.

These go great with any autumn meal and make a wonderful addition to holiday dinners such as Thanksgiving or Christmas.
