Scalloped Yams With Maple Orange Sauce
- 3 large yams or sweet potatoes
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 3/4 cup maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup butter
Place whole unpeeled yams in pan and fill with water until 2″ above the yams. Boil until tender, cool and chill for several hours. Remove skin and slice into 1/3″ slices and arrange in an au gratin large enough so there is between 2 and 3 layers only. Put orange juice, maple syrup, cinnamon, salt and butter in a saucepan and boil 10 minutes. Pour sauce over yams and bake in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes.
