Candied Yams

Low Calorie Recipe

Candied Yams taste as sweet as candy with ground nutmeg, apples and low calorie maple syrup.

Maple Syrup for Candied Yams


4 pounds yams, peeled and cut in 1/2 inch slices
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup low calorie margarine
4 apples, thinly sliced
1 cup pure maple syrup

Recipe Directions

Boil yams and apples until nearly done in very little boiling water. In greased baking dish, place alternate layers of drained yams and sliced apples. Sprinkle with nutmeg.

Dot the mixture with margarine or butter and drizzle with maple syrup. Pour 1/2 cup of apple water over the top.

Wrap tightly and freeze if preparing a week ahead. Bake about 30 minutes or longer if frozen.

Nutrition Nibble

Pure maple syrup is highly recommended because it contains trace amounts of vitamins, mainly B2 (Riboflavin), B5 (Pantothenic Acid), B6 (Pyridoxine), PP (Niacin, B1), Biotin, and Folic Acid.
