Candied Yams

Small amount of margarine and orange juice give these yams lots of flavor but little fat.

3 medium   yams (1 1/2 cups)
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 tsp flour, sifted
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp orange peel
1 tsp soft tub margarine
1/2 cup orange juice
 


  1. Cut yams in half and boil until tender but firm (about 20 minutes).
  2. When cool enough to handle, peel and slice into 1/4-inch thickness.
  3. Combine sugar, flour, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and grated orange peel.
  4. Place half of the sliced yams in a medium-sized casserole dish.
  5. Sprinkle with spiced sugar mixture.
  6. Dot with half the amount of margarine.
  7. Add a second layer of yams, using the rest of the ingredients in the same order as above. Add orange juice.
