Candied yams

Preheat oven to 450* Found this recipe in a new cookbook called Gather which was gifted to my by my auntie! The authors are the same of one of my favorite existing cook books so very excited.

Cut yam ends and into halves. Poke with fork several times. Bake for about 1 hour. Once cooked you can either leave skin on (I did) or you can peel them totally personal preference.

Cut one pineapple and place in sauce pan.

  I used my immersion blender to make a smooth texture.

Add 1/2 cup butter and 1/4 cup maple syrup to the crushed pineapple. Bring to a boil and reduce. Pour over yams and enjoy!   Almost good enough for dessert 😉
