Slow Cooker Candied Yams
These slow cooker candied yams are sweet potatoes tossed in brown sugar, butter, spices, then slow cooked until perfection!
- 4 lbs yams peeled and sliced into 1-inch slices
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 3 tbsp honey
- 1/2 cup butter melted
- 1 tsp cinnamon ground
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg ground
- 1/4 tsp orange zest
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
Peel the yams and slice them into 1-inch slices and set them. Spray the slow cooker with non-stick spray.
In a small bowl, combine 2 tbsp cornstarch and 1 1/2 cups water. Mix well.
Add the yams to the slow cooker along with all of the ingredients. Mix well.
Cook on high for 3 hours. If the sauce isn't thick enough, mix 1 tsp of water and 1 tsp of cornstarch. Add it to the slow cooker and mix gently.
Cook for an additional 30 minutes or until the sauce is nice and thick. Serve warm.
- Make sure to slice the yams into even-sized pieces so they cook evenly.
- Once the yams are done cooking, mix them very gently so they don't fall apart!
- Traditional candied yams are very sweet, you can always reduce the sugar amount if you don't like it too sweet.
