Roasted Yams

Roasted Yams

Yams are the reddish looking sweet potato that has this marvelous caramelization when roasted in the oven.  I peal my yam before cooking to get this caramelization and to make sure I get every bit.  When yams get cooked in the oven whole a lot is wasted in the serving process.


1 Large yam

Olive oil

Salt and pepper


Peel the yam and cut it into ½ pieces.  Coat the yams with the olive oil and season well with salt and pepper.  Place in a baking dish and place in a 350 oven and cook for 60 minutes.  Half way through turn the yams in the baking dish.  When the yams are soft and browned they are done.
