Recipe of the Week: Candied Yams Recipe

Updated: Dec 27, 2023

This recipe is famous for the holiday season but can be served during the year. Very simple ingredients and easy to make but delicious to eat. Yams were rescued and distributed at San Tan Valley Farmers Market and Casa Grande Farmers Market helping to supplement meals in Arizona communities.

Yams are a type of tuber vegetable that originated in Asia, Africa and the Caribbean. They have a distinct brown, bark-like exterior. The night nutritious flesh can be white, yellow, purple or pink depending on the maturity of the yam. One cup of Yams provides 158 calories, 18% of vitamin C's DV, 22% of Manganese's DV, 19% of Potassium's DV and amongst other vitamins, minerals and fiber.
