Sugar Free Candied Yams

This dish is the one that I’m always asked to bring for holiday dinners.  It’s practically sugar free (the sweet potatoes do have natural sugar in them) & it’s something that I can eat without going into sugar shock.  It’s easy to make & tastes so good.

Sugar Free Sweet Potatoes

 You only need a few ingredients & it only takes a few steps to make this dish.

1 large can of yams (or sweet potatoes), Splenda, Splenda Brown Sugar Blend, Sugar Free Syrup, 1/2 to 3/4 cups of Water & Cinnamon.

A little tip for storing the brown sugar:

Press out all of the air from the brown sugar blend package and fold it over so the air stays out.  Keep it in a Ziploc bag with all of the air squeezed out.  I’ve had this bag for 2 years, and it’s still moist.

Drain all of the liquid from the yams & rinse and drain them well.  Place them in a medium sauce pan & add water.

Sprinkle the tops of the yams with the brown sugar blend. Drizzle the sugar free syrup over the yams.  (sorry, I never measure, but season everything to taste)
