I totally agree with you Uncle Bob.

I love yams that have been slow baked for a long time. I put them in the oven and bake until almost mush inside, the sugars inside have caramelized and the outside is wrinkled and gross looking - no butter, no sugar needed. YUMMY!

You can also slice up the baked yams just before they are done(bake whole and then the peel comes right off). Put them in a casserole dish. Top them with a combo of 1 tbsp melted butter, 2/4 tsp ginger, 1/4 cup maple syrup (or honey), 3/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 cup raisins, 2 tbsp pecans, 3/4 cup cubed apples (mix everything together before you put over the yams). Bake this for about 20 until tender.

I once or twice baked them for a sweet potato pie that I used to spike the filling with burbon.
