Thanks that sounds quite interesting, but these are raw. I actually decided im going to slice em and bake em with orange juice and honey, for some sweet candied yams.

thanks for the recipe though will have to try that as well some time.

I've had many good dishes made with fresh yams (not a fan of canned at all). But for me, a simple, unadorned baked yam (not sweet potato) is still the best, at least for non-entertaining purposes. I bake them until they are very well-done, and I eat them skin and all.

Yep, I love them baked. I bake them and then top with butter and brown sugar.

I find them sweet enough as is, but I used to add a little butter. Now I just love them the way they are. When baked long enough, the texture seems moist and rich enough on its own.

Last year I made Tyler Florence's recipe for whipped sweet potatoes with roasted bananas and honey. I made a test batch a few days before Thanksgiving, and I'm glad I did. All I could taste were the bananas. I cut back to just 1 1/2 bananas instead of the 4 he called for. It was the hit of the dinner.

Big difference between Yams & Sweet Potatoes.
Never had Yams, and only like Sweet Potato Fries with Kosher Salt sprinkled on.

See description of the skin & flesh of a Yam:
