Golden Apples and Yams

Golden Apples and Yams

Because yams (or sweet potatoes) require much longer cooking time than apples, this recipe calls for pre-baking them. This step can be done a day or so ahead if desired.



  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Bake yams for 50 minutes or until soft still retain their shape. (This step can also be done in the microwave; microwave yams on high (100 percent) for 8 to 10 minutes, rotating halfway through cooking.)
  2. Cool yams until they can be handled. Reduce oven heat to 350 degrees F.
  3. Peel yams and slice crosswise. In shallow 1-quart baking dish, alternate apple rings and yam slices, overlapping their edges slightly.
  4. In small saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch, and cloves; stir in orange juice and blend.
  5. Heat orange juice mixture, stirring, until thickened; pour over apples and yams.
  6. Top casserole with nuts and bake 20 minutes or until apples are tender.

Serves 6.
