Tasty Tuesday: Cranberry Candied Yams

I am always looking for tasty ways to serve our veggies. We tried this tonight. It was yummy! (Oh ya, my sweet potatoes ended up being large instead of medium so I doubled the sauce.)

Cranberry Candied Yams

4 medium yams or sweet potatoes
1/2 cup whole-berry cranberry sauce
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/3 cup of honey
1 tablespoon melted butter

In a large saucepan, cook the potatoes in boiling water until just tender. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cool the potatoes slightly, then peel, split lengthwise, and place in a greased 8-ince square baking dish. In a small bowl, combine the cranberry sauce and lemon juice; spread over the potatoes. Then, in the same bowl, combine the honey and butter; pour over the potatoes. Bake for 25 minutes, basting occassionally.
