How To Make The Best Candied Yams

Try this delicious southern recipe as a side dish or even as a dessert using yams as the main ingredient for this dish. Desert Farms2Table distributed yams at three Farms2Table Farmers Markets in Florence, Mesa and San Tan Valley to supporters on April 13th.

Yams are tuber vegetables native to Africa and Asia. There are over 600 species of yam, but only 15-20 are edible. Yams are rich in vitamins and minerals and are a nutritious food staple in many places outside the U.S. A single yam packs a whopping 369% of your daily vitamin A requirement. Yam vitamins and minerals also include vitamin C, calcium, and iron.

Sharing on your social media pages is a very powerful tool to help us get the message out so more Arizona communities can benefit. Desert Farms2Table is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
