Easy yams recipe made on the stovetop!
By now, you all know how much I love candied yams. So far I’ve shared a best ever yams recipe with marshmallows, and a southern baked yams recipe. This year I’m sharing my recipe for Bourbon Candied yams. However, unlike like previous yam recipes, I will be making these completely on the stovetop.
This recipe is very similar to my previous candied yams recipe, however I use bourbon whiskey, and corn syrup. The bourbon adds flavor, however if you aren’t down with it- you can leave it out.
These yams only take about 45- 50 minutes to make. You can make them a day before your holiday gathering, and simply warm them up over medium heat. This recipe can easily be double , tripled, and etc. Just make sure that you have a big enough pot or pan for all your ingredients!
