Donna McGee's Homemade Candied Yams
- Peel yams and rinse with cold water. Cut each potato into cubes.
- In a medium-sized pot, combine butter and vanilla extract. Add ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg and sugar. Once combined, add sweet potato cubes. Cook on medium-high, until yams have come to a boil. Then reduce heat to medium-low and cover with pot lid for the remainder of the cooking time. Let simmer 10 minutes before serving.
