You might have better results looking for Sweet Potatoes, Turnips, and Potatoes. Though sweet potatoes are often called yams, yams are a completely different veggie, more bland, and starchy. A gratin is a layered potato dish where sliced potatoes are placed in a buttered round, casserole dish, starting from the center, and laying them down, slightly overlapping in an ever widening circle to form a layer. The, for your recipe, this would be followed by peeled, round slices of turnip, everything dotted with butter, and seasoned with saly and pepper. Finally, put down a layer of sweet potatoes, again dotting generously with butter and seasoning with salt and pepper, maybe with a touch of ginger. Finally, pour 12 oz. of evaporated milk evenly over the gratin, cover with foil, and bake at 350' F. for 45 minutes, or until tender. Remove foil and lessen sides. Flip onto a searing dish. This would be great with ham, or corned beef.
