2 cups brown sugar
1.5 cups butter
Cinnamon/Vanilla - mix with melted butter and place on bottom, between potatoes and top for yummy marshmallows-after cooked to finish the top
Parboil the potatoes in boiling water until tender, but not too soft.
Drain and run cold water over all to halt the cooking.
Cut into circles, thickly so the pieces will have more texture.
Assemble the potatoes in a large rectangular Pyrex or other oven safe dish and cover.
I cook in the morning at 350 degrees for 2 hrs.
Baste regularly with the juices.
Remove cover when half way cooked.
Then it can be warmed for 15-20 minutes – 350 degrees- just before eating. Again, dot with butter and add a wee more brown sugar. Just before serving- add the marshmallows and brown… the result? Yummy Candied Yams!
Yield: 1.5 casseroles for 14-17 people
