4 med. size yams or sweet potatoes
1/3 c. orange juice
1/3 c. brown sugar
1/3 c. bourbon
1/2 c. broken pecans, unsalted
2 tbsp. butter
STEP BY STEP:
Boil yams, unpeeled until almost tender; do not overcook.
Cool, peel and cut in one inch slices.
Arrange in buttered glass baking dish or casserole.
Combine orange juice, brown sugar, bourbon and pour over yams.
Dot with butter, top with pecans.
Bake in 350 degree oven about 20 minutes until heated through and yams are tender.
If the pecans are toasted first before adding to the casserole it improves their flavor.
