Baked Yams with Lime and Honey
Makes 8 Servings
- 3 yams, about 4 lbs.
- 1/2 cup water
- 6 Tablespoons honey
- 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
- Juice of 4 limes
- 1-1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 350 ℉.
Wash yams and place in a baking dish with the water. Bake until potatoes are soft when tested with a fork and skins are puffy, about 1-1/2 hours. Set aside to cool slightly. (Leave oven on.)
When yams are cool enough to handle, peel and place in a medium baking dish. Add honey, butter, lime juice, salt and pepper. Stir and mash well with a potato masher.
Cover with foil and return to oven for 15 to 20 minutes longer, until heated through.
