ISO - Yams, heavy cream recipe

I bought some Yams and I have a lot of extra heavy whipping cream left over from the mashed potatoes recipe I tried a few minutes ago. I have been looking on Google but I don't see any simple way to use these two together. I was wondering what you all think I can do with them.

Normally I guess I would just bake the Yams and eat them with butter but I have no idea what to do with this extra heavy whipping cream. I could just toss it but I thought that I should at least ask here first. It is about to spoil too so that is why I am kinda rushing.

I found this about two uses of heavy whipping cream:
2 Uses for Heavy Whipping Cream | eHow.com

I read on another thread that I could just freeze it and when I find some kind of way to use it then thaw it and use it. Taste will not be the same but will still be "ok"...

You could make a Yam pie as you would sweet potato pie and serve it with cream. You could also add the cream to the yams like mashed potato. Mashed yams are delicious. You could cube the yams and steam them then serve with a creamy curry sauce. How much cream do you have?

here's an idea. Steam the cubed yam. Then fry one large chopped onion and about 2 tsps of crushed garlic with some curry powder or paste. As much as you like, not sure how strong you like curry. Add a can of chopped tomatoes, season with salt and pepper. Add about half a tsp of ground cinnamon and a dash of ground coriander seeds. Add the yams, simmer for 5-10 mins and lastly stir in the cream. Serve with basmati or regular rice or even some naan bread.
You can change the spices as you like, this is just off the top of my head, I don't use recipes, just taste as I go along.

I'm a milk lover. When I had extra heavy cream I just drank it. Sinfully luxurious!

Pour the cream into a chilled mixing bowl and wisk until stiff peaks form. Refrigerate until yams are done.

Cube the yams, 1", add to a saute pan with 1/4 cup water and a pinch of salt. Cover and steam over med-high heat until water evaporates and yams are tender. You might need to add water if the yams aren't done. Reduce heat to medium. Add 1/2 stick of butter, 1-2 Tbsp of light brown sugar and a splash or two of bourbon. Cook until glaze is thickened. Serve topped with whipped cream!

If you're like Paula Dean, use as much butter as you like.

Oh my! I have never thought of that. I am definitely about to try that.

I love the sound of both your recipes, CraigC and snip13! I will try Craig’s first and then I might just buy more cream to try the other one since it sounds so yummy. What sort of meat would you say goes best with that recipe you thought up?

Usually with poultry or roast pork. Have you ever made creamed spinach? That would be a good side for a nice ribeye.

I also make glazed carrots the same way, but skip the whipped cream.

I make it without meat most times but cubed lamb or beef would work well.
My daughter calls me the curry queen, she says I'll curry cornflakes if I could
If you use meat add the yams once the meat is tender and the cream just a few minutes before serving. Yams will turn to mush if you add at the same time.
