Yams and Cranberry Bake Recipe
  • Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • Cut the yams into about 3 pieces and cook in boiling salt water until tender, about 30 to 40 minutes. Drain, cool, peel, and cut into 1/2" slices.
  • Wash the fresh cranberries.
  • In a greased 2-quart casserole dish, arrange half of the cooked yams. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup of brown sugar and dot with 1 tablespoon of the butter or margarine. Add half of the fresh cranberries. Repeat the layers.
  • Add the orange juice to the dish.
  • Cover the casserole dish and bake for 45 minutes.
  • While the yams are baking, prepare the walnut topping by melting the butter and adding the brown sugar, cinnamon, and walnuts.
  • After the baking time has elapsed, remove the casserole dish from the oven and add the walnut topping. Return to the oven and bake uncovered for an additional 15 minutes.
